Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Well,
29 mins 15 seconds = 29.25 minutes
29.25 mins /60 mins per hour = 0.4875 hours
7.9 miles / 0.4875 hours = 16.2051 miles per hour

alternatively (not 100% sure what you are asking)...

29 mins 15 seconds = 1755 seconds
1755 seconds / 7.9 miles = 222.2 seconds per mile
222.22 seconds per mile = 3.70 mins per mile = 0.062 hours per mile

Is this what you were looking for?
Use at your own risk as I am not a mathematician,
and as always, check my math!
Hope this helps.
