    Sounds like it would be about the equivalent of making it to level 14 or so on a "beep test"

    its not terribly hard if you do it while fresh and have a decent level of cardio. whats amazing is that the TUF guys did it after a 3 hour workout.

    I'd do pretty good at this until about halfway. At that point my lungs dragging on the treadmill might complicate things a little bit.

    LOL.. I said the Same thing and one of my Trainers decided to bet against me.. I made it but man let me tell ya. It was a hell of alot tougher than I figured as you suddenly have to move up in speed then set yourself up at a regular pace.. by the time that happens the 5 minutes is up and you're up another mile doing it all again... But since you can run the 9.5 in 20 you shouldn't have too much a problem as long as you're determined to do it that is!

    I guess, the first 5 minutes are usually the hardest of any run while you get into a pattern. I guess the real probem for me would be the fact that I start it and just run without looking at the time, I find it puts me off/makes the run seem longer if I start looking at how long I have left.

    What went first, the lungs or the legs?
    0 % incline?

    Tread workout

    Every 1 minute raise up the Incline. So 1 min on 1 incline, 2nd min on 2 incline until you get up all the way to 15 incline. Speed will vary from one person to the next. Anywhere from 5-6 or 7 miles per hour. Everyone is different. But you keep the speed the same.

    When you get to 15 incline, next step is to go down..go down to 14 incline ( changing every minute of course), then bump up your speed a little bit...So you can end up on 1 incline doing 12mph..!!!!!!!! arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..Great workout..
