basically is a combination of everything( long runs, easy runs, workouts), but i think that the best way to improve economy is doing workouts at R ( mile race pace ) and I pace(roughly 2 mile -5k race pace), hills, strides and form drills.

But again, its a combination of everything, because if you do the workouts that i describe above and not do endurance workout (i.e. long runs), your form is going to be sloppy and your economy wont be as good.  hope this helps.

Cesar is right, it's a combination of everything. As I list out a few of the things you can do to improve running economy, notice how they are most of the components of a well planned training program.

- Run a lot (base training)
- Run on hills (strength work)
- Strides
- Form drills

If you mean running economy then run more, run faster, do form drills.
Do not support those who give a bad name to running, boycott all Devine Racing events: Marathon of Palm Beaches, New Jersey Marathon, Las Vegas Marathon, & Salt Lake City Marathon.
