While running do so on the balls of your feet, it'll help strengthen your calves.

lack of stamina has always been a problem with me.
no more now. i only do 200 skips a day in a space of 2 minutes.
and a few days before the fight, i take a herb called 'pau sam' - american ginseng.
does wonders.

running is of great importance my friend. sparring, shadow boxing and heavy bag punching does increase your endurance. but when have to fight several rounds against an agressive opponent, then running really is great. your legs will always be fresh, they'll be quick and bouncy no matter how many rounds u have to fight. it can only help you, cuz maybe you'll fight against a big muscular guy with strong punches/kicks. if stamina is his weakness, then you can find your advantage in legs aswell.

I like skipping rope. It's sorta fun, and really helps with balance and such.

Try interval training. Run at a hard pace for 3 mins, slow for 1. Basically you're simulating the exertion level in a fight. do this for however many "rounds" you can.

i don't know if people will agree with me on this but try running down a steep hill fast - possibly sprinting. you'll develop good balance and good footwork quite quickly cos if you fall down a hill its gonna hurt, which is also the downside, if you mess up you're going to be in pain lol.
it will also keep your mind occupied, concentrating on where your foot will go next and if your arms are about to hit a tree or something. oh and the rush of adrenalin is great.

its best if its a hill on a feild or in a wood as its better for you feet and spine than being on tarmac. and there are more obstacles and less people.

Running downhill increases the potential pace you have, while uphill builds strength and anaerobic endurance.

IMO you need interval and distance running (the longer it gets, the less hills, but still over varied terrain), and strength training. Cycling can be strength or endurance work. I know distance runners are skinny as a rake, but building up muscle mass and fibre stregth cannot possibly hurt - distance runenrs merely specialise so much they incorporate nearly no resistance training (at least in the past).

Run through the woods off a trail! You'll most likely have to deal with varying terrain, various objects in your way, going up hills, down hills, poor footing. Needless to say, keeping a steady pace is impossible, and that's the key. Navigating difficult terrain is an activity far more akin to fighting (in terms of movement) than jogging or running.

An added bonus is that it tends to be a lot more interesting than jogging down a road and nets you some quality Nature Time.
