    Default Re: Increasing 1.5 mile run time

    I am not a running guru, so I can't tell you what works the best. I am sure everyone else's advice will work. If you need to accomplish more than just improving your 1.5 mile time, I can tell you what did work for me.

    I am trying to build my strength endurance in all aspects, running, calisthenics, heavy loads, etc. Because of my available training time, I have been trying to kill as many birds with the same stone as possible.

    Senior RKC Mike Mahler has a program called High Octane Cardio (HOC). I have been using the indoor version. After only a few HOC workouts, I dropped my 2 mile time by about 1.5 minutes. HOC involves kettlebell swings, cleans, snatches, burpees (squat thrusts), jumping jacks, hindu squats, sit-ups, and push-ups.

    A few guys who consider themselves in good shape because they run well got crushed the first time they tried this program. I believe you will get quicker and stronger, but there are probably more efficient ways if you only want to get quicker.
