Maths question for gym

Recommended Posts

To join the police I need to be able to run 2.4 km in 12 minutes 15 seconds. So..... at what speed do I set the running machine at the gym?

 

It's Friday night and my brain is tired and I can't work it out. Maybe a beer would help?

 

Also, the kids who join need to run the 2.4 in 10 minutes 15. What speed do they need to run at?

 

Am I right for 12kmh and 14 kmph respectively? I tried to run at 14 kmph and nearly died after 5 minutes.

Do you have to do the run on the road? 12km/h in the gym is a bit easier than 12km/h on the road. 14km/h would kill me too for 10 minutes. That is a sprint for me!

find a steep hill roughly 100-200m sprint up and walk down. Your cardio vascular will improve after a few weeks you will find 2.4k in 12 minutes will be easy.
