    Do you have any tips on how to run a faster mile? I am trying to lower my mile time, right now I run about an 11 minute mile but would like to get down to an 8-8:30 mile time. Thanks!

      If you’re trying to up your speed, a good way to do it is by doing interval training (Sprint for 30 seconds, Moderate Run for 30 seconds, Slower jog for 30 seconds). As you get more adjusted to this training you can up your sprint time, while decreasing your jog time. (ex. Sprint 60 seconds, Moderate Run 15 seconds, Slower jog 15). You can also increase your interval speed, so if you start out sprinting at a 6 on the treadmill, then up to a 7. Make sure you are stretching and wearing proper shoes so that you don’t injure yourself. (Also rolling out can really help) Let me know if you have more questions!
