How do Endure and -ance become Endurance?

When you take the meaning of Endure, to be able to withstand or suffer through a pain, and when you denote a quality or state of that verb Endure, and you add the suffix -ance to the word, you change that verb that means to be able to suffer through something very painful to go through, into a noun that has the same premises and concept just into a different form.

Endurance exercises are any activity like walking, jogging, swimming, raking that all increases your heart rate and breathing for an extended period of time.
