2. Or any kind of help on training that will make me faster?
3. What kind of foods have alot of carbs in them?
Any help on those questions would help
or any advise or experence while you were running
A base for endurance will allow you to run faster, for an extended period of time regardless of your event. Example, I run with the 2 milers on workouts yet I run the 800 and anchor the 4x4, the endurance allows me to keep at a consistent peaked speed for longer periods of time without lactic acid build up, or atleast allows my body to learn to tolerate it.
Pasta's and breads have a lot of carbs in them, but its better to get carbs from foods with less trans fat.
Also, screw the 'breathe through your nose, out though your mouth' saying. All that does it slow your heartrate and reduces the amount of oxygen entering your body. In other words, it doesn't allow you to run efficently. Just breathe through your mouth into your stomach, not so that your chest rises and you'll be inhaling more oxygen faster which then allows your body's muscles to be fueled better.
Full ride scholarships in CA, either UC or CSU schools is as following:
Mile- 4:17 or below with 3.0 GPA
2 Mile- 9:30 or below with 3.0 GPA
800m - 1:56 or below with 3.0 GPA
This goes unless you happen to win a county title or place in a state meet.
1 mile: 4:25-4:15
2 mile: 9:30-9:15
5k (XC): 16:20-16:00
This should get people looking at you and wanting you to run at their schools. I havn't met these goals yet, but I am getting close.
Getting under 16 minutes for the 5k and under 4:25 for 1600m would make you much more competitive.
As for getting faster, any kind of interval training is a good idea. Make sure you're getting plenty of practice running at your race speed. When you run at race speed you get experience in how to run efficiently when you're running fast. If you have the chance, watch a world-class runner run the 400m. Those runners look relaxed when they're running, but they have huge strides. They just bound down the track. Remember that running fast isn't just moving your legs quicker; it's a whole different approach to the stride. I never fully understood that when I was in high school.
ps dont go to hard ull get injured like me
Smaller scools may look at you for substantially slower times or good grades!
Bet on good grades!
Talk to your coach directly about getting faster! You aren't specific enough for answering here.
Food- just no junk food or soda pop and lower your milk consumption.
