The bleep test 2002-04-13
From Lorraine:
I am currently undergoing training and have asked about a fitness test called the bleep test. The bleep test involves running continuously between two points that are 20m apart. These runs are done in time to a pre-recorded bleep sounds on a pre-recorded audio cassette. The time between the recorded bleeps decrease after each minute. I would like to do my own personal version for training but I have to work out the following before doing this:

I need to find out the time in-between the beeps at least for the first level so I can work out the difference for the other levels:

The information given to me for the first level is :

A 20 meter run at 8.5km/hr (how long would it take?)

Please let me know if there is any way in working out this query with the information given.
