I live in Florida and have the same challenge. I worked with a personal trainer for a while and he told me to keep my incline at at least 1% if you want to simulate a flat run and use the incline throughout your walk or run on the treadmill to increase the difficulty and simulate hills. Hope this helps. Good luck and happy walking/running!

Hi, everyone! I'm Bonnie and I'm from Texas. I love to take long walks and runs outdoors for fun and fitness. Unfortunately, the Texas emoticon causes temperatures to go emoticon and can actually be dangerous to run in. In the winter, I can bundle up. In the summer, 90 to 120 degree temperatures (and lows in the 80s/90s) hinder my ability to stay outside. So, I've just signed up at my city's gym (rec center) so I can use the treadmill/elliptical and other fitness machines.

I've heard that there's a big difference between the two, so any advice about how to maintain or increase my outdoor running with treadmills / elliptical machines would be greatly appreciated.

I look forward to getting to know everyone better.
