A runner's diet?

running has alot to do about form. elbows in, head up, running straight, just main form things. Ask your coach about specific form work outs. also do build ups. start slow, build up to a sprint, keep a steady sprint for a while then build back down. every couple of times that you do that, hold your sprint for a little longer. You have to go strong. evertime! and if that doesnt work for you there is always distance..

I up get on 5 am ... then 15 min to 20min laters .. i going to run abt 7 to 8 miles ... then should i dink ..?

if its for sprints when u start have a wide stride then narrow it down till its a full sprint. technique helps out alot : )

I need help with track...?

All the answers thus far are good, but keep in mind that you are born with speed. Scouts and coaches are always looking for a person who is fast. They can work on the other things but not your speed. That's God given.

Track spikes if you don't already have them. Just keep condisioning. It pays off.

Who can give advice on Track?

I would try these 3 things:

1. Endurance: Build up your distance by adding one long run to your weekly workout and gradually increasing it each week.
2. Speed: Add intervals once a week...don't go "all-out" on the first interval - try to do even pace at around 90%. You can give it your all on the last interval.
3. Strength: Hills are great weight workouts for your legs. Every other week, try doing a hill workout instead of intervals.
