Hopefully someone can help. I've been trying to crack a 5 min mile for a while now and Im stuck on around 5.18 on the track (1609m) and 5.07 according to a Google maps mile which doesnt seem precise. I've been shaving good chunks of time off but now hit a wall where I cant seem to beat these times. I've tried running 3 miles at good pace, attempting the mile itself twicwe a week but want any assistance that can get the 18 secs off this now.
Any breathing exercises I can do outside of running? Anything I should be eating more of/less of besides obvious? Any shorter, faster runs like sprinting 400m? Anything I can help to warm up, eat a few hours before or not eat 2 hours before? Every little helps here. Any training ideas to finish this as quick as possible will be helpful, Im running 3 times a week at the moment.
