So the weather here has been pretty crappy lately and I’ve started back on our treadmill since I hate walking in the rain. I’m not on a mission to lose a ton of weight just to get my endurance back. When we were traveling last summer, we would walk at least 6 miles a day and I didn’t notice it. The last 2 weekends we went away, I found it hard to keep up our usual pace.
So….How long? Incline? Speed?

I jog at 6.5 mph for 20 minutes with the incline at 2. Then I put the incline up all the way (12) and I walk at 3.7mph for another 20-40 minutes, depending on how I feel.

I like to do intervals to keep from getting bored. I start with a walk of 3.5 mph for .10 then go up to 5.0 for .10, 6.0 mph, 5.0 mph, 7.0 mph, 5.0 mph 8.0 mph, and 5.0 mph for 3 miles. If I feel the need to walk I will go to 3.5 after the last 5.0. Other than that I will jog at 5.5…I am training for a half so the last run was 8 miles. The other day I tried an incline of 2 for a quarter of a mile at 5.0. Someone on here told me intervals were really good and it does keep me from getting bored!
