Ok so i have joined a new gym. I have noticed that the treadmill speeds are different both treadmill are sent into kph but one treadmill seems much faster than the other. For example 15 kph feels like im running 10kph on the treadmills in the different gym. I have asked a few staff at the gym and they didnt know what i was talking about.
Should i just stick to what the treadmill says or higher the speed? Thanks.

You should be able to tell if it is too slow if you look at the time you're running your 2.4km (provided the distance calculator and time are correct).

A speed of 15kph for the full 2.4km would be 9:36. If you do a trial run using this then, if it is slower, you can work out how much slower it is and account for it.

Ye, that seems the best option. Thank you will definitely do that.
