    Unless running hill repeats or ‘gradient’ sets, we use the treadmill at 0% (flat). The sports scientists will tell you to set it to 1% to simulate running on the road, but we do not want to emulate running on the road. Instead we use the treadmill to our advantage to develop leg turnover and rhythm.

    So glad I read this as I have always put the treadmill to 1.5%.
