    Yikes - that's such a broad request! HOw old are you? What events will you be doing? HJ/PV, sprints, middle distance? Maybe you should train for the 400/800, just so you can see what events you SHOULD be doing. If that's the case, one example of an approach you could be doing would be to run 4 or 5 miles one day, and 600m repeats the next. We need more info about you, but you need to ask your coach first.

        Alrighty then -we're getting somewhere now. Have you asked your coach what he recommends you to do for now? 600 to the mile is 'middle distance', which means you need endurance first and speed second. So get some good mileage in now (depending on your experience level at that) and then start some interval training (repeat runs from 600 to 1000 meters) maybe twice a week. Talk to your coach first and see what he says. Good luck!
