Hello I am a student in a boarding school in Newport, RI

My goal over this summer is to be able to run 2miles under 14minutes so that I can make the varsity soccer team in my school.

However, this task is not easy at all.

I come around 18 minutes for 2miles

I have around 3months from now till the try-outs

Can I just get some tips on this and also tips about how to not hurt myself while doing this?

You should try to incorporate some interval sessions into your routine to improve your speed and endurance. The idea is that you run at your target pace for a minute before jogging for a minute and repeating. As the weeks go on you need to reduce the amount of rest time in-between each rep and before long you will feel the benefits when you run your race simulations.
