About a year and a half now. My job isn't too bad. The problem is that what we do while we're deployed is really the only facet of this job I could see myself doing for an extended period of time. I have 2.5 years left on my enlistment, although unless something crazy happens I'll be reenlisting. Lately I've been considering trying to be a PT in the Air Force. That way I can get people strong, fix their issues, etc...while still getting completely free healthcare. Our PTs also get to do pretty cool continuing training: ours here told me he got to go spend 2 weeks working directly with Duke Basketball's PTs, and of course it was a TDY for him so he didn't pay for anything. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
You're talking about working on your running, what seems to work decently for me is to make sure I'm doing some running with more distance than 1.5 miles, usually 2.5-3. I try to make it so that I'm running a little slow at the beginning, and killing it at the end. I've had several very accomplished runners tell me the way to do the test is to run a tiny bit off pace on the first lap, run your pace, and then on your entire final lap you just murder yourself. I do like the idea of 400m intervals, I will have to try that when my test is coming up.
