I know it can be done. My child had to pass a test like this one and it was impossible according to her brain. I know that we talked about adding some training to her schedule to help prepare her for the test. This did improve the overall speed. Also we added a mental piece where she would write down the time she wanted to reach that week and then see if she could beat it. These times were based on realistic times she could meet and stair stepped down until she was under the required time. Also place notes throughout your home with encouraging messages about making the time goals set up. Hope this helps and believe in yourself you have already gotten that far.

You could try adding speed drills to your running. How far are you running when you do your two days a week? I would try adding a third day that has speed drills. Good luck on your test.

Can this be done..yes this is for a test. I need to run a mile and half in 16 min and 52 seconds. Right now I can run a mile in about 12 minutes the last time I tried. I run now twice a day. How can I pick up my speed? Help
