HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO COUCH TO IRONWOMAN!!
I used this virtual race as part of my training for this............
Notice it climbs over 1200 feet!!! I drive up this mountain once in a while, and its STEEP!!!
So, for some help, I went to facebook and asked some of my math wizard friends what incline 1200 ft would be on my treadmill. For 3.5 we will be walking at a 6.5 incline(treadmill).
So for my 4th training WALK on the treadmill, I used a 6 incline and I did mile one at a 3.2 pace, mile two at a 3.4 mile pace, and mile 3 at a 3.6 mile pace. I know that walking up the mountain will be much harder than a treadmill. The road wont be moving under me.
