Well if your aiming at a 1.5 miler under PJFT time limit then thats a speed of 8.6mph.

I like to run at a steady pace then sprint the last 3 minutes.

1.5 miles is 2.40km and 3 miles is 4.80km

run the first 1.5miles at 12km to do it in under 12.30mins and the second at 14.5 to get 10mins

i put the treadmill at 2% incline and then run 5km at a steady pace of 15km an hour. That makes it 20 mins for 5k which is 3.1 miles. i do 1k walk first so my legs are stretched properly
