my treadmill display is not working accurately except for mph. trying to figure out how far i am running. calories and fat calories burned also. what is the distance at 6,7,8,9,10 mph for 30 minutes? is there a mathematical formula to go by?

If x stands for the miles you can run in 60 minutes (mph), for 30 minutes the distance you cover can be represented in this formula:

x/2

Example: 6 mph (6 miles per 60 minutes) –> 6/2=3

3 Miles. You Ran 6 Miles Per Hour For Half An Hour. So 3 Miles.

If You Are Running 30 Minutes Just Divide The MPH in half to get the distance.

Running on a treadmill is not the same as running on an actual trail. there is no related distance

A formula would be:

[ (number of minutes) ÷ 60 ] x (miles per hour)

So in this case:

(30 ÷ 60) x 6 =

0.5 x 6 = 3 miles

Or you can simply figure in this case… You’re running 6 miles per hour, so you’d run 6 miles in an hour. You ran for half an hour, so you ran half the 6 miles. That’s 3 miles.

If you’re always running for 30 minutes, just divide the miles per hour by 2 to get the distance.

And here’s a calorie calculator. As a hint, if you enter your weight and 1 mile as the distance, you’ll always burn that many calories per mile as long as your weight is the same. You don’t need to use it every time.

There’s not really any point in trying to calculate “fat calories” separately, too. Any calories you don’t burn are eventually going to get stored as fat anyway, so you might as well view everything as “fat calories” one way or another.

I know as a avid runner, I used to train with the treadmill until I burned out the motor, but I do remember that running 6 mph would equal a 10 minute mile. So you would of ran 3 miles for 30 minutes at 6 mph. I really couldn’t tell you anything about the calories burned because it would depend on different factors like incline and or/the treadmill. Sorry about that. Here is a pretty good link regarding the treadmill workout.
