A monitor with a chest strap is on my wish list. I plan to get one as soon as I can. In the meantime I suppose I will continue to track at 3.0 mph...

Not automatically; have you thought about investing in a heart rate monitor with a chest strap? It'll give you a more accurate measure.

Alternately, you could track how long you run at each speed, and track those intervals separately.

My standard workout is on the treadmill. I never go below 3.5mph and 5% incline. Most of the time I do a 10% incline or vary between 5 and 10%. I also always speed it up until I can't continue and then drop it back to 3.5 or somewhere in between.

My question is this - there are a few treadmill options that include both a 5% and 10% incline but the only speed choices are 3.0mph or 4.0mph. I go with the 3mph because I don't want to over-estimate although I am always at 3.5 or above.

Is there some way I can be more accurate or am I logging it in as close as possible?
