Set a meaningful end goal for yourself that you find motivating and challenging. Then, consult with an online program, a reputable book or a running coach to design a program that maximizes your time and minimizes junk miles. That means your training plan should focus on quality, rather than quantity. High-quality training is that which is specific to your goal and your skill level. Running extra miles beyond what is necessary may break you down and wear you out.
Whether you've just signed up for your first 5K or have a few half marathons under your race belt, running faster is sure to be on your list of goals.
