How was your last half marathon?

Find these feelings in your run

The stress level of basic durability is easy. The traditional instruction to “keep being able to talk” still works for most runners in exercise monitoring. However, for novice runners, walking breaks (10-30 s) are often necessary if a long run causes too much exhaustion. However, long-term basic endurance causes natural fatigue due to energy depletion and stroke of steps, but it is related to the nature of the exercise. Recovery and rest will then make the condition even better.

The aerobic threshold is referred to by many runners as "brisk." For the runner, this is a pleasurable pace, as now there is no need to brake and the step rolls comfortably forward. However, keep your pace under control, and don’t make threshold training for all your runs, but run at a clearly lighter pace.

In the speed endurance range, the strain rises little by little. Breathing becomes thicker. When running in a group, “jokes start to decrease” as it becomes more difficult to speak. Lactic acid begins to feel in the muscles, but the body is able to flush it out if the pace is moderate.

The pace of the anaerobic threshold already requires mental determination, and you will only be able to maintain it for a limited time. Exceeding the threshold causes a burst of lactic acid, which can hardly be eliminated by a short recovery or deceleration. You have reached the maximum level of your aerobic capacity.

Maximum durability tests the limits of oxygen uptake. The feeling is reminiscent of a short running race. You can maintain this strain for just a few minutes. In training, a good guide to long bets is to run them at an uphill pace. Starting too hard will cause breathing, and oxygen uptake will no longer develop.

Do you want me to write more about the physiological facts of endurance training?

Don’t forget to dress for the weather as required by Stargames brand products to get to your events by agreeing with management in a timely manner. For orders, contact stargames@stargames.fi



RUNNING BEFORE OR AFTER WORKOUT AS A RUNNER

Strength training could be a key component to unlocking running performance. It may be the only way advanced runners can even achieve further progress. Beginner runners benefit from strength training by working muscles that help promote running economy and efficiency, which will ward off injury and promote total body fitness.

If running (or any endurance activity, such as cycling) is a primary goal, do cardio after strength training. However, if the cardio session will be shorter and low intensity (like a simple endurance run of 30-90 minutes), doing high-repetition, low-weight or body weight strength training  AFTER running can help build muscular endurance and improve running stamina.

Muscular endurance is different than absolute strength. Whereas pure strength is about how much force one can produce quickly (e.g., during a squat), muscular endurance is about training muscles to resist fatigue over long periods of time. One can easily see how muscular endurance is beneficial to runners: running longer distances like half-marathons, marathons and even ultra marathons. Muscular endurance will allow runners to retain their running form longer, which means not only maintaining running economy for longer but also decreasing the risk of running-related injuries.

Sound worth it? Here’s how to do it:

Do an easy run. Try to avoid running hills. Don’t do intervals. Just do a basic endurance-paced run anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes. It should feel almost boring.

After the run and while the body is still warmed up, do a strength training session that focuses on high repetitions and low (if any) weight. Repetition ranges should be 20 to 30 per set. Cool down with light jogging.

Combining running and strength training back to back is a serious session. Make sure to fuel properly before, during and after (like with a hot cocoa recovery drink). Don’t finish the workout starving. The recovery demands from this type of training are huge–but so are the benefits. Don’t do these big sessions every day–twice a week is plenty and should likely be followed by a full recovery day or an easy run (for advanced athletes)

Good to remember

At some level maximum strength and endurance are on opposite ends of the physiological spectrum.

Does a calm jogging pace motivate you for a half marathon? What if you kicked the ball in front of you all the way?
  • Time 1:53´24
  • Distance 21.32 km
  • Average speed 05´19 /km

How would you start to develop my running from these starting points?
