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 causes temperatures to go 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.
