How to increase stamina and speed. My speed is 30kph now?


Answer by Dominique:


Hi there,
Thanks for your question. At that speed, you'd be setting world records for any race 800 metres and up. If you want to go faster than that, get off your moped and step into a car.



Just in case this is actually a serious question... I would invite you to go over to my running training section and read up on:

  • Base Running Drills


  • Tempo Running


  • Interval Running




  • This will teach you all about the different speeds of running you can do and how they can help you increase your stamina and speed.

    Kind regards,
    Dominique

    Well, I'm not an expert at converting metric to English units, but if the speed that you mention in your question is what you are trying to improve on, then good luck!
