Tips for Running without Getting Tired

One of the things that those of us who like to go running would like the most   is to be able to run without getting tired, something that today seems impossible, but it seems that many people do manage to do it.

Running is a good feeling, because when we go we feel alive, we are doing sports, we are feeling very good because of the endorphins and finally we are making friends if we all go running together.

However, many times we end up too tired when doing a certain race, something that we certainly do not like, since the feeling of not having air, of having tired legs and of not being able to run the way we want nobody likes, without to doubt.

Imagine being able to run without getting tired, with all the benefits of running and with all the entertainment, but without drowning and without the discomfort of running long distances. It certainly seems impossible, a true unrealizable utopia.

However, surely you have seen people who run 10 kilometers and don’t flinch or even people who are capable of running marathons and finishing them well, practically whole, when you are not even capable of running 5 kilometers without drowning completely.

That means that it is perfectly possible to run without getting tired or at least manage to run more and get less tired, being able to reach the finish line in one piece.

Not only is it possible, but we know exactly how to do all this. You just have to keep reading to find out how to run without getting tired.


  1. Control the pace:
    The first thing we should know when it comes to being able to run without getting tired is to know that the race pace is practically everything when it comes to this. What you should know is that the body produces fatigue when it cannot keep up with the rhythm that we are giving it, something that makes us stop. If we want to run without the uncomfortable feeling that we are tired, we must bear in mind that the most important thing is to control the rhythm, because if the rhythm is adequate, we will be able to withstand what they throw at us. The first of all is to run at a pace, in which we are comfortable, in which we do not have to make a lot of effort to maintain it. Secondly, we must try to find a rhythm that is constant, that is, if we go at 12 kilometers per hour, we should always go at this speed, without changing it so as not to tire ourselves excessively due to changes in rhythm.
  2. Control breathing:
    There was a time years ago when I took to going for a run every day. I was not a sporty boy then and therefore, I got tired right away. However, I discovered a trick to be able to hold on longer, breathing. Actually in aerobic exercises like running, breathing is very important, almost being the most important part of everything, because if we don’t have enough oxygen we will get tired. If we don’t want to pant later, we must find a deep breathing rhythm, concentrate on keeping it constant and try to keep it stable for as long as we are doing it. Once we have achieved it, remember it and do it always, because when you want to realize it, you will do it unconsciously and you will never get tired again when you go running.
  3. Control the terrain:
    Many people are just as used to running on the flat and when they change planes, they will suffer the consequences and he is going to get tired or he is going to get tired too little. For this reason, you should always control the terrain where you are going to run, since running on the flat is not the same as running on a slope. On the slopes, we have to make twice the effort to cover the same distance and for this reason, we will get much more tired even if we cover even less distance than on the flat. For this reason, when you plan your routes to go running, you must take into account where you are going to run, since if there are slopes, you will get more tired and you must keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that if you run on rough terrain, you’re going to have more trouble running than if you run on good terrain like asphalt, so keep that in mind as well.
  4. Know your limits:
    Going back to the story of when I ran every day, it occurred to me to sign up for a popular race. Since I didn’t know my limits, I tried to keep up with those in front, something that weighed me down, since I fell apart and ended up exhausted, very tired and unable to cover the distance I had proposed. What I didn’t realize was that I was capable of running the 6 kilometers of the race, but at a much slower pace than the people who ran in the lead. For this reason, I still had my limitations and I should have respected them, since in this way, even if I had not won, I would have managed to run the kilometers without resting, something that I would have liked to achieve. For this reason, do not run much more than you are used to, both in speed and distance if you do not want to end up tired.
  5. Practice a lot and go little by little:
    The next step we must take is to practice a lot and run a lot to improve little by little, something that will allow us to go beyond the limits and that some distances stop costing us. Ironically, to run without getting tired, we must get tired every day, since it is the only way to go overcoming limits. For example, if you are not exactly an expert in running, start by running a kilometer jogging (running very slowly) until you stop getting tired. Then go up to a kilometer and a half and pick up the pace a little, then go up to two kilometers and so on until you reach your goal. I went from running 1 to 6 kilometers in two months, leaving every day, something that I also achieved thanks to controlling the terrain and breathing in the correct way. Once I did, I was able to run without getting tired and a little faster each day, since you had to try to beat the time each time you went to run. In the end, what I mean by all this is that even if you get tired now,
  6. Train your lung capacity in other sports:
    You can also improve your running by doing other sports that don’t have to involve running. For example, if you do sports like swimming, you will be able to catch a good bottom that will later be useful when running. So if, for example, right now you can’t run at all, start with a similar sport that gives you that tiredness, in order to gain bottom and be able to start running getting a little less tired. In addition to that, you can also do sports like soccer or basketball, in which you run a lot, but in a more entertaining way. For this reason, in the end you will be able to achieve your goals in a different way, but in a similar way, that is, with a lot of effort.
