Aerobic Endurance Running

Endurance is how far a person can run at a maximum pace without their heart rate going above a certain threshold. Once above this threshold, the body is no longer running Aerobic but is now running Anaerobic, which has a limited time ! Online coaching with me Paul Fletcher

**The figure below will vary ! depending upon which Country or University has done the research

Figures would suggest the mile is **84% Aerobic but lets look more closely at that. If an elite runner races a mile, he may take just 3min 47secs. So this means that it is not the mile that is 84% Aerobic but the time taken, which is 3min 47secs for an elite athlete.

Taking time into consideration we have Aerobic Endurance as

Time                 Aerobic Endurance %

20secs                                                 5

45secs                   between 40 & 60%

2min                                          70%

4min                                           85%

12min                                         95%

60min                                         99%
