$\frac{1}{5}$ miles
To find the time for one mile, first you can find the time for $\frac{1}{4}$ miles. There you divide the time given by 5, because the distance given is $\frac{5}{4}$ miles:
$\frac{1}{4} \div 5 = \frac{1}{20}$
Then you can find the time for one mile, by multiplying the time for $\frac{1}{4}$ mile by 4:
$\frac{1}{20} \times 4 = \frac{1}{5}$
