to do any exercise or exercise plan. Step 1. Acquire the proper running shoes. Go to a specialty store and get fit for a
quality pair. Don’t wear your running shoes for anything
but running. Step 2. Practice interval training by running on a
track at your race pace for two to three minutes followed by a 90-second rest. Aim for 90 strides in 30 seconds, alternating
hills and sprints. Do intervals no more than twice a week, and
rest the day after your interval. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water,
especially before and after workouts. Step 3. Increase the length of your long runs every
two weeks to improve endurance and concentration. Long runs should be a slower per-mile pace
than your race pace. Stretch, warm up, and cool down after workouts. Step 4. Do strength training to keep your body injury
free. Increasing muscle tone in all areas of your
body helps you on longer run days and gives you greater power. Step 5. Add other types of workouts, such as biking
or spinning, a few times a week. You’ll increase your fitness level and strengthen
your leg muscles, which will translate to better run times. Extra weight slows you down, so eat right
and lose weight if you need to. Step 6. Substitute your interval workouts with one-mile
time trials before your next race. You’ll get a better idea of your pace and
give yourself time to tweak your workout. Step 7. Drink a caffeinated beverage 30 to 60 minutes
before a race. Studies show caffeine can improve performance. Did you know At the 1936 Berlin Olympics,
Jesse Owens became the first American to win four gold medals in track and field.

Run 2 times a week and just run as far as you can when you get out of breath just stop and rest repeat this and your running distance will spike through the roof. I started with 800 meters it went up to 2.4km in 2 weeks and in 1 month i run 5k

  15. No, no, no, no, no, cross-training is never a suitable substitute for actual running. I've never known anyone who cross-trained themselves into better running times. If you want to become a better runner, then run.
