Running Speed/Tempo: how do I train to run at a certain speed?

how do I train to run at a certain speed? (for eg. running a 10K or a 1/2 at ~6mph).

I am comfortable running 6mph currently. I have been using the RunKeeper app which shows me my run summary (at every mile and at the end of the run)


But are there are any tools to help run at a certain speed without having to check the speed and correct oneself regularly.

to make it more second nature after sometime so that i dont have to rely on the learning aid like music.


For instance, music - bpms can be used for setting the pace to workout @ the gym.
