Running: Increasing Distance and Endurance

Many runners want to go farther, whether that means someday completing a road marathon, an ultra trail race or an extra loop through the neighborhood. Whatever you aspire to, you’ll need to put in some work to get your body ready for running longer distances.

There are many philosophies on how to best train to increase distance and endurance. Here are several tried-and-true approaches:

  • Add mileage gradually so you don’t overdo it and injure yourself
  • Change your pace to boost your training
  • Train in phases to build base mileage and add variety
  • Run hills to increase strength, endurance and speed
  • Do general strength workouts to build overall strength that will help you endure longer runs
  • Eat and drink well because proper nutrition and hydration are key to any training program
  • Rest to ensure your body can get the most out of each workout
