I remember your involved with Royal Marine Selection. These tips of yours are valued.
No probs mate
Mix it up, strengthen your legs and do circuit training. add a longer run once or twice a week too, 4-5 miles maybe. find your rhythm, pace yourself and take it steady. after a couple weeks have a test day and run 3 miles best effort. took me about 6 weeks to get my time down from 22 to 18 mins. ive run it in 17.5 twice now but i won't get lower than that. i was sick both times due to the effort it took, but not when i run it in 18 mins.
Posting a training log might help keep you motivated. good luck mate
