Treadmill cheat sheet – speed conversions, pace times and target distances table

Marathon run speed
Fartlek Amsterdam Marathon 2012

When weather conditions are unsafe in the winter months, I often do my running on a treadmill at the Gym, treadmill running is an odd alternative, but there are a few things you need to know. If you’re running at speeds under 9 miles an hour (a very fast 6:40-minute-mile pace), treadmill running burns about the same number of calories as running outdoors.

But if you run faster than 9 mph, you’ll burn fewer calories on the treadmill. That’s because you don’t have to overcome wind resistance and because the treadmill belt does propel you along a bit. So for the average runner treadmill is a great alternative. So if you can not get out a run, just jump on the treadmill and go, here is a speed conversion, pace times and target distances table to set that treadmill correctly for your level.
