    I enjoy doing HIIT training three days a week and jog on the treadmill two days a week. Got me in good cardiovascular shape pretty quickly

    anecdotally drop sets have improved my conditioning as well as HIIT work and performing complexes.

    If you're training to pass a specific test train for it. I believe police physicals look for long distance and short distance performance so train both. It's not complicated really, if you have to run 1.5 or 2 miles or whatever in a given time, work at it until you do. Same for a sprint.

    You might have better luck on a running site. Runnersworld.com or runningworld.com or something has templates to improve times I believe.

    You aren't sculpting a body so a more appropriate site for you goal would make sense.
