Lindy S So after an enforced break, I hope to be back running soon. I've completed this before, but I need to get back to at least this level again.
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. ”

Alex D Done on Friday night at my 5k race for the first time since my accident I didn't walk during a 5k run, not even for the few seconds I was down to. Woohoo!!
Derek S I did this today whilst taking an outdoor fitness class in the pouring rain. There was 7 of us in the class and we all completed.

Daniel E 36.22 minutes without walking (although had to slow down to get through the gates and to cross roads), complete. :)
Daniel E Did it during my last 10k I guess, but mostly been doing 5km lately (mostly due to asthma this time of year) so will do this again. Don't do enough running while chatting, good complement to those quicker runs.
Tracey L Completed again. Wasn't quite so tough this time. Even managed to up my speed for last 3 mins. Maybe it helped that I drank 2 litres of water today
Vylisa A encouraged this.
