What running plan worked for you to increase your 1 mile time.
Today I took a fitness test at school and I ran just a little over 9 minute mile. Not too bad but I wanted to hack up a lung! This is a 16 week class and my goal would be to either do a smooth 9 minutes at the end or even 8 minute mile without feeling like I am going to die (like I did today). I have seen a lot of suggestions in magazines and such but I am more interested what you found worked for you, and how often.
