This isn't about bodybuilding per se, but fitness related non the less. I need to be able to run a mile in 7min, right now I am super slow. I don't know how fast I can run it now, but I know I'm not fast at all. I have two weeks before I have my first deadline for running a mile, so what kind of progress is possible in 2 weeks? I realize 2 weeks is nothing, and so I don't expect to be able to do that in 2 weeks, but I'm curious what is normal expectations on improving running time. Thanks
just a shot at ur prob, try hittin da weights for lower body squats leg pres calf blah blah everything 3 times a week, and start jogging 1 mile for 3 days then 2 miles for 3 days then 3 miles 3 days then work on ur sprinting 30 sec jog 30 sec sprint for about 5 mins n increase it by a minute every day . oh and diet down lose weight n ull be faster u can loose a good 5-10 lbs in 2 weeks get to that cardio roaR!
well we need to know what your time is right now first...
running a 7min mile might be possible in that time. Just run a mile everyother day for the two weeks, lift ur legs, and do sprints. Your time right now is probably closer to 7min that u think

I owuld train all out for a whatever time you have less. If your test is running outside then run outside. treadmills are easy to cheat. Whenever you have time run and run a lot. I know when I ran in HS we ran 5 days/week and I got decently quick in a short time. You have to build up your endurance so i would run 2-3 miles each time so that way 1 mile will seem easy.
For technique I would try to take long strides and breathe at a slow steady pace. I am sure if you research a little there are articles written on this. But a 7 minute mile isnt too hard, nor is it ieasy for a lot of people. Just educate yourself the best you can and give it your all.
For the people saying left legs...it is in 2 weeks, he is best off if he trains for him stamina/endurance. I don't even think it is that importane for long distance runner to train legs like weightlifters. I have known a lot of runners who ran awesome imes (under 5 min mile range) who never lifted their legs in their life.

Dont lift, thats for sure. It depends on 1) What your running time is now 2) How dedicated you are 3) How much time you are willing to spend training
2 weeks is nothing at all, and you wont be shaving off too much time. I used to run just under 6 min in the one mile and 13 mins on the two mile, and that took over a year to achieve...
I suppose I can time it today. I do taekwondo 2-3x a week, but my problem is endurance. I have fast recovery time, and so it's not a problem in tkd class because I only need to exert myself for a few minutes at a time. Running is different from that.
