So we’ve gathered together some advice from the Army’s own fitness experts to help you keep going for that little bit longer.
Invest in a good pair of trainers and hit the road. If you gradually increase the distance and speed you run over a period of time, you’ll find that your stamina will increase.
Boredom is the enemy of getting and staying fit. So if you’re tired of running, try swimming instead. Or get your bike out and go for a ride. Get your mates involved It's much easier to exercise if you've got someone to do it with. Get a friend to come for a run with you or get involved in a team sport.
Try eating healthier
Unhealthy foods like burgers and chocolate might give you an instant energy boost, but it won’t last and you’ll feel hungry again quickly. Eating wholewheat pasta and bread, fruit and vegetables and lean proteins like chicken breast will provide you with more energy for longer.
When you exercise, drink plenty of water or sports drinks. Steer clear of sugary carbonated drinks or you’ll do more burping than running.
