This webquest was made for students to research and develop a plan to improve running times in the mile.


Every week at DCA, students are required to run a timed mile. There are many factors that affect the outcome of your mile.  Factors such as equipment, exercise, diet, and psychology can affect your outcome.

Your objective is to use the four factors mentioned above to develop a program that one of your classmates can follow to improve their mile time. Use the internet, magazines, and books to help you develop their plan.
