How to improve mile time

well...I am a 14 year old girl in 9th grade. My mile time is pretty fast at 6:15. I'm wondering if there are any ideas for me to improve my mile time...
by the way I thought it might be interesting to know that i have 30% body fat...and I can still run

Re: How to improve mile time

do distance runs on a weekly basis then interval workout days. for example in a week
60min day
5x3minute day
60min day
3x8 min day


every few weeks do a mile test and run a hard mile on a treadmill to give you a good idea on your time. treadmills tend to be slower times however because you have no forward momentum.

What's up Mazz,

You need to run your 400 in 64 seconds in your workouts.
