If you are not used to running longer distances and get tempted to walk or rest when you get tired. If you want to build your endurance, you need to push and gradually increase the time you spend running without walking.
Take this challenge, and finish a 60 minute run without walking once to complete it.
Run for an hour without walking Challenge rules
“After a couple of injuries, it's taken a while getting back up to speed or basically running more than 5 minutes without stopping. Give your self time to recover and no expectation and before you know it i am there and feel i could go on for more. Lovely”

Extremely pleased with myself never thought I could run for that long without walking, I guess it just goes to prove you can do anything if you put your mind to it .. :) but again beat my record for 5k in under 30, broke the record again to 27 mins .1 very pleased and completed my run for an hour without walking

Sue P I so felt like walking to day but I didn't and although I was hoping to finish my 10k sub 60 minutes the fact that I went over the hour means I completed this challenge instead; that's four times over an hour now - considering on 8/8/12 I could just about manage one minute I'm not too disappointed :)
Allan J 11.18k in 60m 27s - quite a few hills in it as well, 145 metres of climb (according to my watch anyway - felt like more).
Jonathan S logged 11.07 km of Running in 1:02:11 on 12 March
I did it. Barely though. At around 50 mins I was already ready to give up because I was already "dizzy", but I then I thought, I've already "suffered" 50, why not hold on for just another 10 mins. I'm glad and relieved that I persisted. Cheers!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
