There are numerous factors that could limit or boost your performance, and most of them are dependent upon each other. Most new runners make the mistake of confining their training to only a fraction of components at the expense of the most crucial ingredients.There are various physiological elements that determine successful long distance running, be it in a 5k, 10k and beyond. Most researchers, fitness experts and coaches agree that long distance runners can improve their performance through primarily focusing on aerobic endurance, aerobic capacity, lactate threshold, speed training and running economy.Other key components include strength and conditioning aimed at developing overall muscular fitness, flexibility, upper body strength and leg strength. Taken as a whole, to achieve improved performance, a 5k or a 10k runner, just like any other distance runner, must focus on developing high levels of endurance and enhanced power output.Runners’ Guide to Building Endurance and Fitness for 5k and 10k is a comprehensive training manual, a toolbox packed with the right tools for successful competitive running. There’s nothing that’s too hard to tackle if you have the right tools for the right job. After all, aren’t we as good in all we do as our tools?
