How to Increase Your Stamina With a Few Simple Tips
If you are a novice runner, and you’ve been training for only a few months, you’ll need to learn some basics, including how to increase your stamina when running. When I first started running, I didn’t know what to expect or even how to judge my progress. In retrospect, it probably helped that I had once trained as a runner, so I knew what to expect. It was a good thing I also had experience of that sort of running when I began training because running is similar to jogging in the way that both require speed and endurance. These are basic running tips and strategies that will get you started on how to increase your stamina when running.
When I first started training, my biggest problem was getting used to running and maintaining my stamina after long periods of running without much rest. In order to maximize my endurance and minimize my chances of injury, I made it a point to run as hard as I could, as often as possible, at least twice a week. By incorporating a couple of short bouts of high- intensity running into my running routine, now my body has had enough time to recuperate its energy stores, repair any damage and replace any worn-out carbohydrates, protein and glycogen.

As you can see, there are running tips and strategy that apply equally to runners of all ages, but you have to start somewhere, regardless of your current fitness level. The trick with running is to start slow and build up your stamina over time, by implementing shorter exercise sessions and longer runs over a period of weeks. As you continue to practice and develop your technique, you will become more competent, but always remember that the foundation of any workout lies in the warm-up exercises and stretches before the main running exercise. If you want to increase your stamina, make sure to include these basic components into your exercise program.
