    Is 10k run in 1.7 hours bad?

    Weight 100kg
    Height 162cm

    I started running on a treadmill since a couple of weeks back and I can do 10k 100 mins. Any speed beyond that hurts my leg.

    Should I push the run faster or continue the same speed and increase when I lose weight?

    All around the internet says 1km should take only ~6 mins as max.

    I don't say this to be mean or anything, but it doesn't matter. The time is what it is, if it's your best then it's your best. Keep running and training and improving. There will almost certainly always be someone who says your time is ****ty or says your time is great, so don't worry about it and instead keep pushing to lower your own personal bests. Running on a treadmill and running outside aren't the same so that'll also introduce some controversy into what's considered good as well. If your leg is hurting while running faster I'd advise against it and just keep improving little by little. No sense injuring yourself over a run. Obviously at some point you'll need to push yourself a bit further or faster, but do it incrementally so that your leg isn't getting injured to the point of holding yourself back. When you finish the run are you tired? Or are you stopping because your leg is hurting?

    On a treadmill I would just focus on time and intensity and forget about distance, since you aren't actually going anywhere.

    So you don't expect the 2nd km to take longer as you tire? And the 3rd, 4th, 5th?

    google it. the avg person can jog it in 70-90 min or something - a runner is like 40-50.

    you're limiting yourself by being stuck for extended periods of time at what the treadmill is spinning at. download the nikeRun app and go run outside and see what you do

    Prob 90 percent of Americans could not even finish a 10k non the less a 5k

    You can’t compare someone normal 1k to you 10k mile time

    I do a 5k several times a week around 20-23 minutes. I’ve been running for decades. If I did a 10k I imagine it would be 60 minutes and if I did only a 1 k my mile per hour would be faster

    You’re doing really good don’t push yourself harder if your knee hurts though. Running is really hard on the knees as is

    eh, too many variables to say that. you can push harder and keep different paces easier when not pushing a button to stay set at a speed. who's to say he didnt spend 30min content at a "level 7" or whatever, and he actually may have just ran faster. regardless, doing it outside is what he should be more concerned about, because it shows your actual ability and how your pace changes over time - rather than selecting a speed

    True true, generally though the treadmill is easier

    I prefer to run outside because it’s not boring. But often here it’s too hot or too cold. My treadmill is always faster

    Were you running the whole time? That sounds like a brisk walk. If so, comparing that to a runtime isn't really valid in the first place.

    Good job doing it though. As others have said, I'd just focus on improving it a little each time. The first mile I continuously ran was a better feeling than running 5 routinely thereafter.

    Plus I find that the treadmill can be disorienting and easy to lose balance, especially when trying to ignore the TVs in front of me. Much prefer running outside, personally.

    In high school I could run a 10k in 50 minutes. I can't run at all now with my bad knee. But I could walk it in 90 minutes, 4mph, easy.

    Don't compare yourself to others and beat yourself up. Glance at others to see what is possible, and then compare yourself to last week or last month.

    1.7 hours is less than 4mph.

    You are using too much energy bouncing. Just walk briskly and jog 6mph every few minutes. You will finish faster and be less tired.

    If you're running for your health focus on how your body is feeling, sometimes "pushing through pain" can actually cause long term issues. If you are doing it to be competitive I would recommend downloading the nike run app and track yourself against other runners and determine if you are doing well or not.
