Cool long distance speed increase methods

Hello

I've been skating for about 11 years recently. I started skating late at twenty four. Skated all over Texas and San Francisco. Then joined the navy, got married had a kid, then when I was 51 I started up again. Now I am 62 and last week I did 28 miles on skates.

I plan to do longer distances, problem is I am slow I average between 5 and 8 mph. There are marathoners in my club who do 22mph when they are racing.

I'd like to increase my speed, just so I can get through those miles a little quicker.

What exercises and techniques can I use to increase speed with out damaging myself?

Thanks
