I am currently training hard to prepare for my PJFT, and was wondering if anyone had any specific tips on improving my 1.5 mile run time? About 2 months ago I quit smoking completely and stopped drinking also. So since then I've been trying hard to improve my health. Not really been easy though, changing from an overweight chain smoking beer monster to fit and healthy has not been a smooth process. It's all gonna be worth it though! So I managed to get my time down from 14.20 to 13.05 in the last week (ran yesterday). But I have the feeling I am going to hit a barrier very soon! So lets say I have 6 weeks maybe more until my PJFT, what training regime would anyone advise? I have been doing interval training some days (usually for 30 mins or so) and I practice my 1.5mile run on the other days. This is mixed in with a lot of resistance work too. Any help or pointers appreciated! I can only find long-term regimes for 1.5 mile run with google search (over 2-3 months) but I need something more short term!
