Hey everyone,
For people using a treadmill to do this what setting do you have for speed and incline for the walking and the running?

Hi there,

I keep my runs at 5mph.

I change my walk speed through the week to help prepare me for the longer runs. Day 1 I walk 4mph, day 2 at 4.2 then on day 3 I walk 4.3/4.4.

I haven't played with the incline yet. I'm punishing myself enough as it is Smile

Im running 5mph or 8km/h in my world Smile
my walk is half my run but my warm up and cool down is 10min either side at 4.5km/h

my treadmill has an incline but its on 'knotch' number 2 so a slight incline.
