Run for 30 mins without walking to improve your endurance
If you are new to running its common to get tired and out of breath when you run. To build endurance in your running as a beginner, aim to increase the time you can run without stopping or walking as a break.
The target for this challenge is to run for 30 minutes without walking or stopping to take a break.
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
Training for the following exercises will be automatically logged against this Challenge:
“This was new for me. I never do long running sessions for the fear of losing muscles. My endurance was good because of HIIT training (bat out of hell for 30sec, slow walk for 30 sec). I was running at about 65-70 percent of my HIIT speed i.e. about 8-9mph. No incline. ”

no, every run is different. keep it up
Thanks for all the encouragement and advice everyone(: It's really motivating and I'm going to do this challenge again today.

However difficult it was, you completed it, so well done for that. life seems easier on some days than others, running and exercise is no different, even if all other varIables remain constant
I agree there are a lot of factors involved. Some days will simply be harder than others.
It can be for many different reasons. Tiredness, what you've eaten, whether your muscles are tight and if you've stretched etc. There are many factors that can influence this.
