This is my "go to" conditioning hike in Washington. It's a good 9-9.5 mile loop (depending on whether you park outside the gate) with some interesting things to see along the way (Murat's Bridge, the Christmas Tree, Zombie Bridge, Hiker's Hut...). Getting to the Tiger 1 summit will reward you with a great view of Mount Rainier on a clear day, and it's pretty much the only view you'll find on Tiger Mountain (2 and 3 give you a great view of trees!) Tiger 3 is easy enough to trail run down, though you could go the other way (Tiger 3-2-1!) if you want a little more challenge.
