Improving Running Endurance and Ankle Strength with the Tib Bar
In order to improve your endurance and ability to run longer distances, it is important to maintain consistent and frequent running or jogging sessions. However, it is common to experience setbacks such as injuries or periods of inactivity that can decrease your endurance and training capacity. To regain your previous level of endurance, it is necessary to gradually work your way back up.
In the past, I used to run 3-10 miles, 3-6 times per week for several years. However, I had to stop due to recurring knee pain. Recently, when I started running again, I found myself quickly becoming exhausted after only 0.8 miles. However, after consistently running for a week, I was able to run 1.5 miles without feeling exhausted. It is important to note that injuries or time away from training can reset your endurance levels, requiring you to build up gradually.
Additionally, there are basic exercises that can help prevent ankle sprains and knee pain. To strengthen my weak and delicate ankles, I have been performing weighted ankle circles with my Solo Tib Bar in both directions to strengthen the muscles, ligaments, joints, and tendons. For my sensitive knees, exercises such as glute bridges, tib raises, and calf raises have been highly effective.
