It improves you stamina and power...and also imporves your breathing and heart rate

so...depending on how far you need to run....13 mins I'd say about 3 miles...I would do a lap jogging round a 400m track...then 1 lap sprinting...rest...1 lap jogging....1 lap sprinting...rest....etc etc

It really helps me but different people prefer different methods...
Interval(?) training is very good if you want to improve your time fast (to a certain degree)

You can also find yourself a nice little hill (), that takes about 40-60 sec to sprint up (as fast as you can), then jog/walk fast down, and sprint up again as fast as you possible can (again) 4-5 times each day.
It's h**l, but it really works..

In the Irish DF for entry requirmens is 1.5 miles in under 11.30 min.

Its very to do. The only ingreddiant you need is people with you so you dont day dream and remember what your doing.
Getin the car and mark out a mile n half and run it over and over again.

You should be running it in 9min. When I did it, all of us (about 25) got under 12 min. including women which thier time had to be under 13min.

Now I am not sure if it has changed or not, but in The Marines in the early '90's you had to be able to do 20 pull ups (dead hang), 80 sit ups and run a 3 mile run in under 18 min.

For a First Class ^^^^^^ Is a perfect 300 pt PFT. But not hard to do if you try.

Just realized, wasnt the 80 sit ups in under 2 minutes or was it 3?

Im in a similar position, and i would run my 1.5 mile, get my breathe for about 20 seconds and then try my damn hardest to sprint back the way I came.

I never did manage to sprint back but i reduced my time by 2.5mins in just 2 and a half weeks (my best time being 10.16 mins)
