You gain 0.03 experience for every second you run, and 0.04 for every second you swim. You do not gain any athletics exp while in sneak mode. Athletics is the slowest skill in the game to train, you're always training it every time you move about however.
- Ditch the horse while traveling and run to get to your destination instead, or if you're near water then swim.
- Constantly run or swim against an obstacle, this method is tedious but you can cast spells at the same time and train one your magic skills as well.
