Tell me if it's different for you when you do get outside, but I predict your mile time will be faster on a track than on the treadmill. For some reason, that always seems the case.

I would absolutely advocate getting off the treadmill. The test is going to be on a track, so might as well get used to it. Spice it up with some runs around the neighborhood, parks are a great idea. I find the need to change venues once in a while if the scenery gets too boring.
not a fan of sprints?
