phase 1

As long as you pass selection you are fit enough to start .When i started basic my 1 1/5 mile was 10 and a half mins , when i finished it was 8, put the effort in in pt and thats all that matters!
Normally do a run of some sort anything from 1.5 miles to 5 miles, about 2-3 times a week, a tab from about week 5 onwards, and then your circuit training. All in all you will have pt about 4-5 times a week. Then later on the assault course and that comes into it.

It gets progressively harder so you will always find it getting harder but probably never struggle as long as you give it your all. I found it hard but never too much and as your on the same time as me i guess you will find it similar :)

Can i ask what your joining?
Been a while since I did basic but, something along the lines of a PT session a day - Monday you could be doing a steady-state run, Tuesday you could be doing a CV circuit in the gym, Wednesday you could be doing BPT, Thurs you could be doing a PFT, Fri you might get away with a slightly easier session... ;)
haha i hadnt either, but that soon changed, dont worry there will most likely be people worse than you that will be hanging out there arrse so just get on with it :)
