If we get better at running, does running become easier?
The good news is yes. Running becomes easier as your body develops and adapts to the demands you place upon it. If you run regularly, your legs get stronger, your heart gets stronger and is more able to pump the blood and energy-carrying oxygen to the muscles in your legs.

The 10k is usually the next distance that new runners target following 5k. It is a big step up; twice the distance, but is it twice as hard?
