Wanting some advice about my weekly cardio plan

#1
ok, well i passed my ADSC on the 12th december (9:28 1.5 mile time :pale:), and should be looking at a mid January PRAC, so obviously i have alot of work to do. since then ive been talking with an army PTI and i've come up with this weekly training plan, i was just wondering if i could get some feedback as to weather or not this will help get me fit enough given i give 110% effort.

Monday
- 2 mile walk with weighted backpack (16.8kg) to the resovouir, then dump the bag at the top of a very steep 30meter-ish banking

- fintan circuit using the top and bottom of the steep banking as the 2 points
(start from bottom, sprint up, 15 reps of exercise, walk down, repeat 9 times,

best effort run, 2 min rest) currently i am doing 4 sets of this, but next week im hoping to bump it up to 5 reps

- 2 mile walk home with weighted backpack

Tuesday
3 mile run (aim for 20-21 minutes), hill sprints (add 1-2 reps each week), 3 mile
jog

wednesday
-rest/swim or maybe 20-30 mins
skipping

thursday
-Sprint session at football pitch
(start one goal line, sprint to 18 yard line, jog back, sprint to half way, jog
back, sprint to other 18 yard line, jog back, sprint to other goal line, jog
back, jog full lap, walk last width for recovery) did 10 reps last week, so will
aim for 11 this week :)

Friday
- 6 mile run

Saturday
- Weighted walk + fintan (same as monday)

Sunday
- rest

Every 3rd or 4th week ill replace thursday's session with a mock PRAC run (1.5 miler, 2 min rest, 1.5 miler best effort), as well as 2 mins pressups + situps.

You can be too fit, and you will suffer, since everyone will be broken down to a set standard across the board and brought up to passout standard fitness level (which is pretty poor)

Its basic training, If you are too fit, you will see the decline, but for others, who have done no fitness it'll be an incline workout, and as a group 30-40 bods it'll will be done at one level

I see, i can imagine for the para's the majority will be alot fitter than i am, but i wouldnt mind been too fit :) it would make a nice change from the norm for me
