ok so i want to join the british army and have gave my self to the end of the year to get into physical shape that i want the main thing i need to get done is the 1.5 mile run in under 12 mins 45 seconds. this may be easy for some but ive never been a long distance runnner right now when i done the run today at the gym when the timer stopped at 12mins 45 i was just 0.35 miles off i could probably have pushed myself harder and have scraped in but i dont want that i would rather a lower time. so what i thought was if i run the mile and a half monday to friday and each week up the distance. would this be a good idea and would it work to improve my time?

any help is appreciated.

Hi Graeme,
Yes possibly this would help you improve your time, but more important than exercise is nutrition. Remember, its 80% Nutrition, and Only 20% exercise. You need a very good recovery shake to improve your recovery time (Especially if you plan to run Every day), and to help you increase your endurance. I recommend Rebuild Endurance, it's amazing for high-endurance athletes. If you don't run a whole lot now, and you want to also do weight training, in that case i recommend Rebuild Strength Recovery shake; it really makes a Big difference. I know because I use it, if you can't find them you can get them from me, I work with these products and have seen people get amazing results with them. We even sponsored over 40 Olympians in london last summer. a great nutrition program is always necessary.
You can message me if you have any questions
