Not me Devlin but I wish you all the best in training and the military service.
We used to have to do 8 minute miles.

Running is one part of it, but you will need some decent amount of upper body strength too. Try this:

2.4km in 12 minutes wearing boots and carrying a 4kg load
15 chinups/pullups
40 situps in 2 minutes
40 pressups in 2 minutes
25km march in 5 hours carrying 40kg backup

That will give you some basic fitness, but there is little you can do to prepare yourself for the rigours of proper military training. Just suck it up when you get there

thats pretty advanced mate! Im only 16! Im going to harrogate hopefully, they dont expect massive amounts in terms of fitness and strength to start with because its "junior" solider entry so il be fine, the 25km march with 40kg does sound like a good challenge so i might hit that up! As for pullups, im fine with those, i have a routine in terms of weights etc, cheers

That was the standard fitness when I did my military service....and I was 17 years and 7 months old. Thats approximately what they will build you up to, if you can get close to that it will be easier on you

That was the South African infantry, not sure what the Australian standards are like.
