    It should say somewhere on the treadmill Lou.......depends upon how old it is. What speed are you running at? A reasonable pace depending upon your age and fitness would be about 10-11 minute miles. I used to be able to do 8 mins but that was a long, long time ago.....and could only manage 2 or 3 at that pace:D

    Lou, if you're only 25 and pretty fit you could quite easily run 8 min miles, especially if you're only running a couple....on the other hand if you're just starting out then it's most likely kms:D

    If you're just jogging at 7.5 it's probably kms. I jog at 7.2 kph

    Yup, most tredmills are done in km's but your gym should have a conversion chart somewhere so you can see what mileage that is.

    7.5km is equal to 4.66miles
