If you want to become a faster runner, try adding short intervals or pick-ups to your run. Interval training is defined as a series of repetitions of work with a recovery period following each repetition. Chose your intervals based on your race distance. For example you may run 400's to improve your 5K time. You can do intervals at a local track or do a Fartlek. A Fartlek is similar to interval training in that short fast runs alternate with slow running or jogging recovery intervals. Remember to gradually build your speed in the interval as not to get injured.
