they will set that one for you at the gym mate, because you wont need to speed it up, they will just set it at the speed that will bring you in at 12.30. and on the 1.5 mile "back" as long as you set it at around 15 then up to 16-17 towards the end you will come in around 9.30.

Aye, speed=distance/time

Im using a less than elite community gym, ie, different treadmills different speeds.
Anyway.
9 mph still feels like a fair sprint to me right now, opinions?? cheers

well if 9mph really is 15kph then that is a sort of sprint / fast running
i wud say more like 17 is a true sprint but yeh 15 is deffintily not slow
9mph/ 15 kph is a good speed to be running at i should think
