Hey guys, any help would mean a lot I will start by giving some background information I am 21, 6ft tall and weight around 72 KG so I applied to join the army as HR specialist. I recently went on my PDA recently everything went great other than 1.5 mile run my time was 15:45!! Ever since then I been trying to reduce it and in 20 days I only been able to bring it down to 13:40 if I reallly push my self! I been running pretty much 5 days a week. I got another PDA coming in about 19 days. If any one of you could give me some tips or tell me about ur workout plans? I will be really grateful.
 
You need to do some interval training to build up muscle and stamina.

Go for a run/jog (whatever you do)

Run 30secs, sprint 5secs, run 30 secs, sprint 10 secs, run 30secs, sprint 15 secs, and carry on until you're knackered then turn around and do the same again from the start.

Also start hitting some hills, it's all character building stuff,

Good luck!

Look on the bright side. You've reduced your time by 2 minutes in 3 weeks.

Re what you can do to improve, it might be worth adding another recovery day if you aren't used to the stresses of running. Maybe try a cycle day, or spinning class, if you're a member of a gym. Sometimes the old saying 'a change is as good as a rest', really is true.

Jog over to the sticky thread on run times and how to improve them. This question has been asked and answered time after time after time.

Advice from the poster Brotherton Lad should be your first point of reference.
