Basically I'm applying for the police in New Zealand and I need to run 2.4km (about 1.5 miles) in 10 minutes and 15 seconds. The catch is apparently I only have about 2 months to train. I'm in good shape but I'm not very fit anymore and I thought I would have longer to train for it.
Does anyone have any training advice? I'll do what ever it takes. I'm thinking of running 4 times a week. To make that time I need to run about 9 mph (14.5km/h) which is a speed I'm not very comfortable with at the moment.
