Challenge yourself by doing an incline walk on the treadmill.
Start with a comfortable walking pace and see how far into the inclines you can go before you have to lower your pace a little.
For example if you start with a 4.2 miles per hour pace by the time you get to 7% or 8% incline you may have to lower the pace to 4.0 as you continue on to 12% incline. Challenge yourself to stay at your starting pace as long as you can.
3 minute warm up at 0% - 3 minutes
increase 1% incline every minute to 12% - 12 minutes
then decrease incline 1% every minute back down - 12 minutes
3 minute cool down at 0% - 3 minutes
30 minutes total
Stretch and done! Good times!
