How do i improve my breathing when i run?
You should not run today! Listen to your body you need to take a day off and rest. It sounds like you are exhausted because you used up your glycogen reserves and have not replenished them. That is why you had fitful sleep and are still tired. Try to eat some healthy carbs today. Maybe some type of pasta with a little protein. Also try to drink a little maybe some gatorade or something. Today do some stretching, take a nice hot shower and relax. Tomorrow do a light easy run to get your muscles loose and warm this will help recovery for your race on Monday. But I must stress a light easy run. Eat some healthy carbs tomorrow, drink some fluids and try to get a good night sleep. You will be ready as can be for Monday.
It is tough to do two races in one day. In the future you must make yourself drink something within the first half hour after your race is over. Preferably some type of sports drink and if not racing again eat a banana or an orange or something light to get something in you. Later your body and muscles will thank you.
Improving Cross Country 3 mile times?
First, after any hard seesion (be it a race or hard work-out), refuel is key. So the advice on water and a sports drink was good, and wise for you to follow. Second, a good healthy meal to replentish lost carbs and protein is essential. Usual pasta and some meat (like chicken) is good. (And you being a female, some iron-rich foods is key for a female. So nice spiniach salad is good or any dark greens). Also, and this is key, don't forget a piece of cake or pie to get the simple sguars to give the quick sugars athelets need. The carbs are the slow-sugars for later while the sugars of cake are good. (Besides, running races entitle you to a treat.) Look at a nice relaxing hot bath after you races and massage your legs in the bath to remove soreness. The bath will help you relax more. Try those.

What are good exercises to improve your sprint quickness?
The best thing to do is eat well, rest, and drinking plenty of water. many people feel that Gatorade is the best thing for you but water is so much better. Fruits and granola bars are good for snacks. Eat a nice breakfast, getting rest means lights out at a certain consistently, the more you do this the easier it becomes to go to sleep.
