marathon shape with treadmill incline

Hello, first I want to thank you for a nice, free product. I enjoy all of the data it provides.

I run on a treadmill with 15% incline at least once a week. Over the same amount of time, I cover less distance than I would if I was running on the road or at 0% incline which results in lower distance in the weekly "marathon shape" calculation.

How can I adjust the "marathon shape" calculations to reflect the decreased distance, but same intensity, of those treadmill runs?

Thank you.

You can't.

How many miles a week do you think that adds up to?

Probably around four miles a week.

Now that I type that, I'm assuming you're going to suggest to just add a manual four mile run each week. Do you think that would help the calculation to make more sense?

Thank you.

I think like you, it's not possible and I can't imagine the numbers if the way you think.
