    +1 I'm a regular hiker so I do prefer the outdoors but I'm just not ready to run outdoors yet. I'd love to do some trail running in the future but the treadmill is helping me work up to that.

    Thanks. The treadmill for me makes me keep going where as running on the street I tend to slow down or stop too soon, and kick myself later for doing so. Treadmill I stay with it a little longer or longer. SRT I fellowed the program you sent me pretty much but did it on the treadmill.

I know there been many topics on treadmill running here, but everyone seemed to agree if your going train that way have the incline up to at least 1% if not 2%. 2% worked for me because the area in which I live in. Might want to try the treadmill once you finish the couch plan.
    Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. I set the incline to 2-3 right from the start. The only thing I would add is that now that you've hit your running goal, continue cross-training if you're not already.

    Good for you!

    Don't stop now or slow down. I guarantee there is a 5k or a 10k race within a short distance of you. There should be a 5k around mid March in your area. Sign up for it and work your way up to 10k and beyond.

    started a topic Folks finally made the goal

    Folks finally made the goal

    As many of you may recall running has been a weak point of mine for some time. After trying many programs I found one that worked for me. I spent a great deal of time running on a treadmill with the incline at 2% and found a pace that pushed me to the max. I passed my goal of a 1.5 mile in 15:28 and did it in 13mins when I went outside. Granted my time was a little faster on a treadmill by a min. Now I am ready for a PFT when one comes my way. I would advise anyone trainning on a treadmill have the incline up and get after it. Just know if the time to pass is like 15:28 get below that time on a treadmill and work at it. I shocked myself. Any more advice is welcome.
