I am preparing for a race thats on Feb 2014. Part of it is on an elevation and I would like to use the % of incline on my treadmill for training.
The course is moderately flat from 0-10km.
Then from 10.1km to 36km its a steady climb of 900 meters.
That means an almost 1km incline over a distance of 26km.
It has an incline level from 0 - 15.
Could someone help me calculate the incline % of the hill and its related settings on my treadmill please? I'm bad at maths.
I found this link http://www.csgnetwork.com/inclinedeclinegrademcalc.html and found the grade percent change to be 3.46
So how does that translate to the treadmill settings?
Thanks in advance.
