Certain types of training sessions can improve running speed:

  • Interval running
  • Fartlek running
  • Hill running

Basically going for high quality / high intensity sessions will do much more to improve your speed than lots of junk miles, i.e. long, slow runs (assuming that you want to target speed over a relatively short distance, e.g. 100m - 1/2 marathon).
