Improving My 2-Mile Time

What can I do to improve my 2-mile time?


Answer by Dominique:
You are not really giving a lot away about your current abilities, how much you want to improve etc., making it pretty hard to tell you what to do.

The 3,200 metre / 2-mile is a painful distance because you need to go fast, but for quite a long time.





As a first step you need to build your base.

Make sure you can run 5-6 easy miles without problems, and your 2 miler is suddenly a short distance.

Closer towards your race / key races, you will also have to build your speed via Tempo Running and Interval Running.

A good book, not too expensive, which contains a lot of running training information, including a great template for 2-mile races is Daniels' Running Formula. It has been my number one running training book for years.
