Whats the pace you can do for the whole duration and pass the PJFT??.. Seen it about somewhere before but couldnt find it.. Was it something like 9KMH to pass if you do that for the whole 1.5 mile at the slowest speed or something??

Cheers

no you need to be doing around 15kph to be able to pass, its not hard at all.

Speed = Distance / Time.

2.4 (km) / 10 (minutes) = 0.24 * 60 (to give speed per hour) = 14.4 kph

Obviously that would be the bare minimum speed and you would need to go faster than that to allow for the treadmill to get up to speed.

As Stacka mentioned 15 kph is a more realistic minimum speed but you really should aim for the best time possible.

Go down the gym prior to your PJFT for a practice run to see what speed you can do and then it takes away the stress for the actual PJFT.

Allo Rusty. 14.4kph as has been said is the minimum. 16kph will bring you in at 9:18 (would be 9:00 but the treatmill takes time to spead up) you're a cyclist like i am, albeit on a higher level so you should actually find it easier at a higher pace because your quads come into play more as the speed increases.

Retarded question...

How fast could I run 1 mile in if I was running at 19.2kph? Could you show me the formula for it as well :S.

Time = Distance / Speed

You need to do it in either all miles or all kilometers. There is 1.6 km in a mile so...

1.6 / (19.2/60) = 5 mins

The reason you need to divide the 19.2 by 60 first is to allow for the fact that it is 19.2km per 60 mins.
