No incline, walk at 4.0mph, jog 5.5mph, run 6.3mph and use 7.8mph for intervals (gradually increasing to 8.0mph)

I despise the treadmill but when I use it I run at 6.5 or 7.0. I find I run faster on regular ground

First time on a treadmill in YEARS this past week... I walked at 3.5 mph for about 5 minutes then ran (okay I know I'm slow!) for a mile at 5 mph, then walked at 4.0 for another 10 minutes, then did a 2 min 3.0 cool down. Then got off the treadmill and walked around campus for another 10-15 minutes before I got to class. I'm sure all my classmates loved my stinky-ness! I was dripping when I finally got to class!

The fastest I can walk on the treadmill is 3.5 with a 2 to 4 incline.. The thought of walking 4.0 at the place I am sounds to hard.. I am not there yet.. But that is ok with me...

i do a 10% incline @ 11kph or 6.8mph. 40 secs run 20 secs rest for 30 mins.

it just seems to be a workout that i enjoy. it's challenging, and i don't seem to get bored because im not running for more than 40 seconds at a time.

am I the only one with a manual? I can only go about 2.5 mph and maybe 15 minutes..it's at a 5% incline all the time so no break for me. Really bugs me cuz I can walk outside including some hills at almost 4mph for 1 hour so this midwest winter is going to kill me when I can't get out and really walk. I wish I would have saved my money for a motorized one.

I just started doing 2 min @ 4mph then 1 min @ 7mph for 30 minutes or so. Before this I found treadmill boring as f@ck. Now I really enjoy it.

I started at a 4.0. Trying to build myself up. I can do 4.5 now, and sometimes a 5.0. It's good to read everyone's comments - the incline kills me. I rarely go over a 3. Sometimes if I get tired, a 1. I suck. But hey - running is running, and we're being active, right? It's also therapy for me :)

Warm up on 6.5. Run between 7.2-8.5, depending on length & intensity.

I prefer outside running but when I have to use the treadmill I run at 6.5
September 28, 2012 7:05 PM
Speed of 3.5 and incline of 2 but I just got my treadmill I'm sure it will go up once I get more use to it.

I walk (no running - bad knees) at 3.6-3.8mph. I like to kick the incline all the way to 15% for the first 15 minutes, but will admit that I have to hold on when I do that. When I knock it down to 8-10% I can walk at that speed without needing to hold on.

I walk at 4.7 mph. I run at 8.4 mph. I do a 1/4 mile walking, then 1/4 mile running, etc until 3 miles. Takes about 35 minutes.

I'm fairly new to the treadmill so I go between walking at 3mph and jogging at 4mph with an incline of 2.

I know its not the most exciting exercise in the world, but I have young kids so needed something I could use at home. I also exercise at 5am and it's pitch black out at that time so didn't feel safe jogging outside.
September 28, 2012 11:30 PM
My favorite is 10.5 incline @ 3.5mph

I love this answer. I do the same thing, even if it means they'll have to take me out of there on a stretcher.

My treadmill only has 2 incline settings 10% and 20%. I can only do 10% at the moment and my speed ranges from 2.8 up to 4.5 if I want to jog for a minute or 2 (yes, literally 1-2 minutes lol. Im another one with asthma so I can't run for long). But I typically do anywhere from 2-4 miles on the treadmill everytime im on it.
I love it because it has shock settings for walking, jogging and running so it's very easy on the knees.
Im getting some nice muscles on my calves. wink

i'm tall and have a long stride and naturally walk very fast so usually do speed 6.5 (yes walking) and random incline of up to 8 but starting learning to run at the moment although im not getting much faster than 7.6 just yet.

Walk: 3-4 incline going about 3.5

Run: I do hills when i'm forced to run indoors just because it helps with the "perfect conditions", for instance when you run outside you won't be completely flat land. So anyway the incline goes anywhere from 1 to about 6-7 and I run at 5.5
