Hey everyone. I took a fitness test that included a run a few days ago. The thing is I did much worse than what I normally get. I usually take about 14 min for 2 miles but this time it took me more than 16 minutes. This brings me to my question on how do you guys maintain your running speed when training alone? During the Spring and Fall semester I have no issues improving because I am with a real good running group that always pushes me to my limit. However, since it is summer, I often run alone, and as a result don't run as hard as I could/should. Any tips, advice, equipment, workouts, etc. that you recommend to make sure I don't end up losing speed on my next fitness test? I'm not very sure what type of running workouts I should be doing to improve my running time. I know that I should at least include a long distance run once a week or so as well as sprints, but otherwise that's about it.
