My treadmill LCD is broken :-(

Like it says... the LCD display is broken on my treadmill. I just dragged it inside from the garage to start walking and now I won't know how fast I'm going or how far.

If I walk at a reasonable pace (slighly short of breath, but able to speak in full sentences) for 30 minutes how far do you think I will have walked? Anyone know?

If all else fails I guess I can get a new battery for my pedometer and try to figure out how to get it to work.

USUALLY my 'normal' walking pace is a 'fast' pace for other people. LOL And my 'normal' walking pace on the treadmill is 4.0 mph, which is equal to 2 miles in 30 minutes. Obviously I can't say exactly how far you walked, but maybe that will help.

unless you 2 are exactly the same height and stride distance.. that estimate ie totaly off.. im 5'7" and 4 mph is a jog for for me.. 2,5-3mph is a brisk walk. If you dont want to repair it, i would go to a gym.. set certain speed levels and see how many steps per min it is on your pedo and work from there.

If you goal is cardio/fat loss, then distance is of less concern than intensity and time on the treadmill.

agreed.

2.5-3 is the normal walking speed, but that really doesnt matter. those calorie counters are usually too high anyways.

most calorie counters dont take weight into account. for me at 320 to walk 5 miles at 3mph takes alot more energy then a 115lbs chick to walk 5 miles at 3 mph.

Well, I'm walking in the Susan G. Komen 5K in Fort Worth on April 7 so I want to make sure I am comfortable with 3 miles... I think it should be no problem... my husband thinks I am going to die. So, I am about to get on there for 30 minutes and see how I feel...

If my heavy ass can jog for an hour, the walk should be a breeze. I did a 3k walk last year, and didn't even get tired.

You'll do fine, but you should be doing the walking anyway.
A 5k walk should give you no problem. I think I did one once...when I was 9 or so...with my mom.

LMAO

You should do just fine. Walking doesn't get to be too tiring until after mile 10 on regular terrain. Boring? Yes. Tiring? not too much.

I think I'll be fine as well... how long do you think a 5K will take walking at a normal pace?

About an hour, 15 minutes if you keep pace at your "fast walk" (3mph).

That's why I said that MY "normal walk" = most people's "fast walk". I'm 6'0" with a long stride. So even if she was walking at 3.5, that's not much difference.
