Are you sure the treadmill isnt reading in miles per hour ?
I'd not worry too much about the tready reading anyway - who knows how accurate they are. I'd go off perceived exertion - you shouldnt be too far off the pace you want ?
I use Runkeeper and I have found that suprisingly it recorded my last run as 5.09 miles at a pace of 5.10 minutes a mile. Now this would be a great result if I believed it, but seeing as I've only been running for a month and my average pace is normally around 11.19 minutes a mile I find it hard to believe. That would be an impressive sudden improvement!! I was running a different route that I have never done before which had a more all over even gradient, but still too good to be true I think?
Anyone else experienced such data discrepencies with runkeeper?
As a newbie runner, i use Runkeeper, i find this more accurate than runtastic as this seems to not plot my distance but keeps my time so unloaded it. would appreciate and feed back on what apps other people use xx
