Wow, How much difference does that 2% make on a running machine.

I just tried the PJFT at the local gym, and failed miserably. Managed the first 2.4km no problem, but the second part, at 14.5kph, I only managed 4 or 500m on the slope at that speed!

I guess I've got a lot of training still to do

I agree the 2% is killer. I did it without the 2% and finished the second 1.5 at 9:30 comfortably. When I put the 2% on, I'll be happy if I can get it under 10:30.

I personally haven't found the 2% making much of a difference. I think it's because ona treadmill, the running style is slightly different. Just do all your treadill runs on an incline (3%) and fit more hills into your outdoor runs. You'll notice a difference rapidly.

Yea i found it abit shocking the difference it made to me. I can do the 3 mile on a tredmill easy when its not on a slope, i just did it 2nite on a 2% incline. I did the the first 2.4km on speed 12 in 12mins. I had to step off it for a minute i was told you have to just go on a low speed..
When i went on it again i knocked it up to speed 15. only could do it for 6minutes. I personally think im making progress but i think the best way to be perfect at it is to run at a 3% incline. So when you do it for real it will make life easy!
