My goal to achieve for BLET

Hello everyone, first post

I start the North Carolina BLET on Aug 22nd, and on the first day I am required:
50 push ups in 1 minute
50 sit ups in 1 minute
3 miles in 24 minutes

With this being only 2 months away, I am trying to push myself but don't want to overdo and mess the whole thing up. I am trying so hard to stick to a good diet but it's getting more difficult, especially with a 2 year old and not having a lot of time to myself to fuss around with preparing meals.

I am a 25 year old female, 5'11 and about 145 lbs. I am in "good" shape, but that only means I don't have any fat but my running time is not good at all. To practice a 3 mile run means 6 laps around my apartment complex I get tired after about 3 buildings, if that tells you anything.

Any tips, such as time management, breathing techniques, etc? Any supplements/vitamins I could be taking? Thanks in advance.

Re: My goal to achieve for BLET

Eat well. Lots of lean proteins, fiber, whole grains, good fats, fruit and veggies and lots of water. Thats a start. Prepare the meals when your kid is asleep. Good food in essential. It is your fuel. Then just keep pushing yourself to go a little further each time you run. I would also do some squats and lunges to build up some muscle in your legs.
