Just did my PJFT today!

The woman who owned the gym set the first run on 11.7KMH and the second on 14KMH on a 0% incline. (I trained on a 3 thinking it was a 2 incline until last week i found out it’s been made easier)

These are both within the new pass standards.

I was told for the first run i wasn’t to touch the speed or incline so it was kinda like a warm up. The Second she set the speed and told me i could make this faster as i wish! :)

Anyone whos worried about their PJFT, dont be!

I smashed mine last sat, trained for the old standard and the knew one doesn't break a sweat. Asked for a PRMC early September gives me a few weeks of solid training now hopefully to be in better shape by then.

Been breaking myself training for the past 6 months because had to wait as I broke my hand. Should be getting a phone call for a medical in 1 week today thank the lord. Injured at the moment with a bit of shin splints so just doing a full week of aquajogging and light swimming.

I still train with the old standards on the 2% incline, and can do my bft outside in 8.50 now. So hopefully when it comes to PJFT the flat will shock my body

Cheers mate, I didn’t ask but the pti I had was a top guy I’m pretty sure if I had asked I’d be allowed to, might vary from pt to pt though. Good luck anyway mate hoping you smash it and don’t deviate from your original plan of how you usually do it, I could’ve got a sub 9 if I hadn’t got cocky halfway through and stuck it on 18

I have seen that some treadmills have screens on them so you can choose a setting where it looks like your running in real time on actual terrain. there is a few in my local gym. It really helps take your mind off the running.

Can someone clear up these new PJFT standards please?

I’m training at 2.0 incline for both runs regardless and will keep it at that but I’m seeing conflicting posts, just need someone to put me straight please haha.
