How much training should it take to run 3 miles?

Question by g_saiyaman2099: How much training should it take to run 3 miles?
I was a Marine from 2004-2008, where we would run almost every day, anywhere from 3 to 10 miles. The problem is, when I got out, I stopped running. Started and finished college, and want to work back to getting in shape. I can run that far right now, so I am currently running on a treadmill in the house til I build my stamina back up, and, yesterday being my first day unning again, I only could run a 1/2 mile. 1 thing I did notice though is that the running was definatley a faster pace as well, but I want to get back to the 3 mile point so that I can run outside again. Thank you in advance. This is pretty much my opportunity to get back in shape while being unemployed and looking for a job, so All advice is welcome. Also, I am on a healthy “diet” as in changing what I eat for the better, not a crash diet, and just trying to get into an overall better shape. I am 6’1″ tall, 227.2 lbs, with about 22.2% bodyfat from what my scale wih the electric current thing tells me.
