    Default Is my sentense right?

    My version: The treadmill was set to be 1mph in the first session
    A native speaker version: The treadmill was set at 1 mph for the first session

    Is my sentence right?

    What is the difference between (in) the first session and (for) the first session?

    I think they're both grammatical. I think "in the first session" means during the first session, and "for the first session" means before the first session started. I think it would be incorrect if you set the treadmill at 1:55pm for the 2pm session, and you said "in" because you're not yet "in" the first session.
