Hey buddy. I'm in the army and for our PT test we run a 2 mile. I usually make it in about 13:00 minutes but my best is 12:15. The best way to bring down your 1.5 mile run is by doing interval training. I do what we call 60/120s. You sprint for 60 seconds and then walk for 120. Do about 5 or 6 reps. If you can't make the 60/120s you can try 30/60s, same basic principle just switch the times. Do this twice a week and do a good 3-5 mile run once a week and I guarantee you will see your test time come down. Or run more if you want to, its really up to you. I have bad knees from being airborne, walking up afghan mountains with 100 lbs, and various other stupid ass army things... so I prefer to limit my running because of that. Either way, I promise you will see results within a month.
Plus, you should just about hurl after your test. I always get close. If you don't, then you didn't push it hard enough, lol.
