What do you mean by good?

Do you have any large rocks that need to be moved? Wood that needs to be chopped?

Beat the hell out of a tire with a sledge hammer, start sprinting, try some of the crossfit WODs, push your car up a hill...there is a lot out there.

Cardio if you are a fighter is the most important thing.
Cardio if you are a runner is the most important thing.

Both are totally different... If you need none of these (athletics is simular to a runner)

I would personally build up every 2 weeks
week 1: 10 minutes on the treadmill
week 3: 20 minutes on the treadmill
week 5: 30 minutes on the treadmill
Week 7: 40 minutes on treadmill

Personally I wouldn't go above 40 minutes. As for pace I would say anywhere between 60% - 75% of your max heart rate... push out 80% for the final 5 minutes.
