I want <to make it> for at least 10 min

Topic: [to make it] I want to make it for at least 10 min on the treadmill! (context: endurance training)
Added by Cagey, moderator

Could I use the phrasal verb to make it like this or is it rather unnatural?

Thank's in advance!

    Yes, but it should be "make it to ten minutes" meaning that you want to reach at least that time.

    (Slow the treadmill down, and it will be easier.)
    And what is the difference between 'to' and 'for' ? I heard the phrase before in a similar context ,e.g. Boxing - 'You're not going to make it for long in the ring'
