hey everyone, i really need to start a running program so i can get in good shape. i was wondering, what is a good benchmark to aim for? you know, being able to run 3 miles in 18 minutes or some tangible goal like that. Please keep in mind that i live at zero elevation, and i am trying to get in good enough shape for the 7000+ elevation i will be experiencing at the academy.
