Tips from my own experience of running:

Breathe properly from the start of the run until the end.
Dont just breathe properly when you feel you need to, do it from the start.
Properly in my opinion is in through the nose out through the mouth btw.
Light longer strides if you can.
And just dont give up

Hope it helps, it helps me ^_^

Last time I did my mile and a half I ate an English breakfast about an hour and a half before it. I drank lucozade and that helps give you a boost. Think it was sheer grit and determination and lots of running on the treadmill that helped me out.

Keep running at least twice a week as this will build up your stamina and you will get faster.

i have the lucozade at the ready ! when i was in the RN before i was at sultan , they made us do the mile and a half around the astro turf but i swear it was nowhere near 1.5 miles long lol. we also had to carry our pt kit on hangers to the gym which was quite amusing .

i take it you would be joining as an officer if you did join?
Nope, i dont have 5 GCSE's.

I went through, some shit would be an accurate way of saying it, during school. so did a BTEC in college.

Dont like the idea of jumping is as an officer, thinking of C(IS) which someone pointed me towards.
