I have a question. At work we have a teadmill but it only does about 4.5 mph tops. Yet if I crank the slope up I can get my heart rate up to what ever level I want. Which given the coice between that and not training i the better option so here is the question. How do you convert the slope and speed into an equivalent flat road speed?

I believe that at 7% you double the workload. Don't know that doubles the speed but it means you work hard!
