Hi, I'm Brian Blake from Shaper: E. Movement, and track coach in Wilmington, North Carolina. Some tips of how to improve your stamina and endurance. For this clip, you will need good shoes or spikes, a hurdle and a track. First thing is, don't ever run just the event that you're doing. So if you're running a 200 meters, don't go out there and run one 200. Make sure that your events are well prepared for by good training before hand. If you run a 200, one type of workout you can do, repeat 200 with little recovery. That will increase your stamina and endurance while also improving your speed. So, you can run a 200 with a 100 meter recovery, in other words, you'll walk 100 meters. As soon as you get done with that 100 meter walk, you'll run another t200. You might do six, seven, or even eight of these. The same principle holds true to other events. If you're doing hurdles, you can do down and backs. Down and backs where you set a lane of hurdles going one direction, the very next lane comes back in the other direction. What you're going to do is you're going to run, not at top speed, but maybe five step it in between or about seventy percent, go all the way down, turn right back around, come down this lane of hurdles. Take a break and repeat that again. To really improve your speed, your endurance, and your stamina early in the season, you want to give yourself less rest than you do at the end of the season. So early on, you might do one or two minute recovery. As you get to championship, end of the season, you might go 10 to 15 minute recovery between reps. Those are tips on how to improve your endurance and stamina.
