Here’s a quick but hard workout for the treadmill that you can try over the next 3 weeks. This will work for you whether you’re a runner or a walker/hiker. Post your time and have a great workout.

Note- Runners should adjust speed and run on no more than a 3 degree incline.

Note- Hikers should adjust the incline only and hike at a maximum speed of 3.8.
