    Well, run, for one. A strength/power/endurance based weightlifting program is also very beneficial. You don't want muscle growth though.

    work on your running form and biomechanics

    work on getting your hips stronger

    work on your explosive power

    You could also get a trainer or go to a sports club for athletics.

    All of these helped improve my speed.

    Squats (regular, split, and jump)
    Calf Work
    Lunges
    Plyometrics
    Sled Dragging
    Stair/Bleacher Running
    40 Yard Sprints

    I made a quatum leap improvement of my running speed without ever running. I can't completely isolate what did it, but I am sure it was a combination of these things:

    Deadlift
    Squat
    Leg Curls
    Seated Calve Raises
    Standign Calve Raises
    Fucking Determined!

    I read an article by kelly bagget about speed/jump. He said you have to have strength/power/and quick reaction to be a good runner,

    so How much do you squat/dead? if you squat/deadlift a good amount, work on plyos/sprinting
    if you don't have a good squat/D'ling- start squatting and D'ling

    I will see if I can find the article (I posted it on this site)
