First Day First Run ? Treadmill Speed

Recommended Posts

Glad to find this place. Today was my first day I completed the jog/walk on a treadmill. I walked at three and jog at 3.5. That speed seemed tolerable for now I am a female age 54 and have a bout 50 pounds to lose is there a set rate we should be running out on a treadmill? thank you so much everyone sorry if my question seems ignorant I have some health issues and need to get this right.

Good for you for finishing your first day!! There are no stupid questions in here - we're all here to help :) Go as fast as you feel comfortable, and gradually increase your speed and/or incline when using a treadmill. Best of luck to you - please keep us posted on your progress, and feel free to ask any other questions as they come up :)
