    Start at speed 4 remember distance of one mile is approx 1.6 on visual indicator. Increase speed as you improve.

    Although treadmills aren’t very good when training for track, you might still be able to get accurate times.

    I don’t know what type of beginner you are. Some beginners run 12 minutes miles; some run 7 minute miles. When I started, I ran an 8:40 mile, so go for that.

    treadmill is easier and it fools you!!! run on flat road and you will get a much better prediction of you’re time and for a begginer not done much running under 20 min would be good.

    Well, forget the other answers telling you that running on a track is great – thats not what you are asking is it?

    Most people walk at 3 to 4 miles an hour. Im assuming that you want to jog or run on the treadmill – so anything faster than 4mph is a good speed (of course, your treadmill might measure in km, so multiply these numbers by 1.6, 4mph is about 6.4kmh)

    Dont use the speed indicator as much for a couple of runs, use what your body is telling you. For example, if you want to jog on the treadmill, use a speed that makes you think you can still have a conversation. If you want to run in the treadlmill (the difference is speed), run at an effort where you think you can answer questions with short andwers, but not have a conversation. After a couple of runs you can use the speed indicator to set the speed as to what you were running at before.

    As a rough guide though, double walking speed would be good – 2 miles in 20 mins (6mph). Most women in my gym run along between 5.5 and 6.5mph if that helps you

    A good speed is one that you feed comfortable with. I guess it also depends on your age, fitness, weight etc. Run at 10km/h for a bit, and if that feels easy increase it in 0.5 km/h intervals until you find the right pace for you that you both enjoy but still find challenging.

    12 km/hr is the pace for a 50min 10k run which i always think is a benchmark.

    A treadmill is easier than running on the road, but if you set the incline to 1% this roughly equates to running on a flat road.
