Endurance training is a game of patience.

May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy - Collosians 1:11

      • Endurance training is a game of patience. It typically will take about two weeks to see any fitness gains from any workout, which is why many coaches advocate a two week taper for most events. You aren't going to gain any fitness by doing any hard training immediately before the race, but you can certainly ruin your target race by burning yourself out training too hard. If you are changing up your methods or routine every few weeks you are essentially going to be starting from scratch and resetting that clock.
