Practice using metronone starting 16th notes at 80 beats/sec for example and work up each day until you fall apart. You can alternate between eighth notes and triplets as well. Speed and endurance will surely encrease over time - assuming you are tonging correctly in the first place for fast stacatto or more legato tongueing style.

Also, (without the saxophone) wherever you are, whatever you are doing, just keep going "dadadadadada"

People may give you strange looks, but it will help.
