# Indoor Running

with the cold weather approaching I may have to start using a treadmill to keep my training going

My pace, according to my app, is 6min per KM

The treadmill is KM per Hour

Anybody know what speed I should have the treadmill at?

10kph?
• If this is a joke, I don't get it.

I'm not sure I just answered the question.

Didn't want to make any comments.

60 mins in an hour.

You take 6 mins to do a km.

60 divided by 6 = 10.

So that is as Millsy says 10kph.

Anyway - if its cold - just man up and put an extra layer on. The only time I won't run outside is if its icy and slippy. Other than that - get out there.

Dear RW,

This looks like a prime example of a seasonal thread whose themes get repeated several times in multiple threads as the nights draw in.  Since you're into your sticky threads, any chance of having one with a practical purpose like this one?  A chance to discuss elementary arithmetic, indoor vs outdoor running, debates over whether "the treadmill does all the work for you", how quickly Yaktrax are likely to sell out this year, whether you're still a man if you start wearing tights or tracksters in October... that sort of thing.

Cheers.

• Cougie, Maybe buy some spikes to run when its icey and slippy!!

Seriously, It was a geunine question, i do run outside and intend to continue doing so but there will be times when its "safer" to run indoors

• What is needed here is one of those old fangled casio digital watches with the mini calculator buttons. Then you can calculate away while on the treadmill. I think I'm going to ask for one for Christmas (a smartphone would be no substitute)

Thanks?
• thanks for taking the time to reply to my somewhat foolish question

You're welcome.
• And I'd like to see Cougie thank the Paul for HIS advice too

Paul,

Bear in mind that 6 mins per km is easier on a treadmill than outside (sorry gym bunnies) so if you want to keep up your outside pace, you will have to set the treadmill faster than 10 kph, maybe 10.5 instead.

• I dont even run outside even in Summer ......... only for races. Just saying....
