I done mine today at 8:44
the 2.4km / 1.5 mile run
had my first practice 3 miler at split pace earlier. 1st 2.4k took 11:10 (didnt realise 12:30 was so slow) and 2nd 2.4k i got 9:29. on road
i am aiming to get around 8 minutes for my PJFT on friday (need to adverage 18kmh). based on my above times do you recon im *text deleted*ing dreaming and 8:30 is a bit more realistic?
what speed did you set the treadmill ipodbob?
I see people with these times of under 9 mins (I dread to think what mine is at the moment >_<) and then wonder why it is that alot of the people who fail on the PRMC do so on the 1.5 mile part back. At least im sure I saw something on this site that said this was the area alot of people seem to be struggaling in.
Think its because people arent running off the treadmil? Or finding it harder to set the pace on the road?
I think it's because you don't just do a light warm up then run 1.5 mile,
you have to run 1.5 in less than 12:30,
and then run it back best effort,
so obviously it's *text deleted* be a lot harder,
and like you said it's tougher on the road.
