This is Jamie Glick I'm here to talk about how to train for a mile run. Many people have a goal whether it's a one mile run, 5k or 10k, but the one mile run has a lot involved in it even if it's the shortest. We'll go over some tips to help you run your best. When training for a mile race, it's important to have strong leg turnover and quick leg turnover. You want to be able to pick up that speed as quickly as possible and you also want to be able to last the entire mile. So there's a lot of different things that go in to running a fast mile. First you want to make sure you've been running for awhile and that you have a strong base to come back to. This will help in your training, and this will help ultimately in your race speed and endurance. Second way you can help run that mile quicker is to do some plyometrics and bounding. Running the mile quickly is all about quick leg turnover and spending as little time as possible on your feet. Another way to increase your speed in a mile is to do sprints on the track. You can try something called ladder sprints where you sprint for 100 meters and then walk for 100 meters. The other type of training you can do is called a farbuck training and it's a short burst of speed and then a walk and then a short burst of speed maybe five or ten seconds and then a walk or a light jog. This too can help with your leg turnover.
