Want to Get Faster - 1.5 Miles in 10 Minutes Goal

by Rob

I found your site about 2 years ago as I needed to run because I want to get into the RCMP, and have become very addicted to running.
I run about 10.5 minute miles, over 4 miles, but need to be at 1.5 miles in 10 minutes, and I am having trouble getting to that plateau.

Do you have any tips or programs that can help me increase my speed?

Thank you, Rob

Answer by Dominique:

Hi Robert,
I suggest you do two things:

(1) Read through the articles in my running training section. Especially:
Improve Your Running.
To run faster you need to:

  • run further

  • do faster work (tempo/interval)

  • (2) Design a running program with good foundations. Apart from recommending to use my running coaching services, I can recommend using a book such as Daniel's Running Formula.
    This book is the "one-stop-shop" for all your running program needs.
    A must have.

    I hope this helps.
    Good luck with getting to your goal.
