Ok, this is going to seem a little silly but I hope someone can help me. My question is, is the distance measured on an elliptical trainer similar to running or is it compared to cross country skiing or something else? If I am on it for 30 minutes, it usually says I have gone 10 km (about 6 miles). Do people really run 6 miles in half an hour? That's 12 mph...is that reasonable? Or is that too fast? If I had the answer, I would add my miles to the 1000 miles thread but I don't want to report inaccurate miles!

Because of the flywheel action, it is actually more like a bicycle then anything else.

I set the level on mine really high so I never go that fast. I don't like having to go that fast. I'd rather set the level higher and go slower.
