I need to run a mile in 8:30. What speed do I need to run to be able to accomplish this? I can already do 20 mins of 5.5. I really am proud of that seeing as I'v become a couch potatoe. Now I need help trying to realize my goals. Any info on this would be appreciated!

Not exactly sure but I do 8:30ish and I run around 7.5mph and I also "jog" at 4.5mph once or twice during mile but only for 15 to 20 seconds at a time
