MRSFERGUSON3 welcome! You could try slowing down the speed. My trainer told me it was important to go longer than to go faster. I only walk on the treadmill at 1.7 (I have a very short stride) but I am up to 15 minutes now. Just a thought.
No exercise today! Just ran out of time. That means I cannot miss the rest of the week.

Excellent job Brown. Keep up the good work and stay motivated!! Ferguson it's perfectly fine to start slow. I only did a few minutes too when I first started working out. Your body will adjust and become stronger as you keep going!

MRSFERGUSON3 - We all start somewhere and I think 6 minutes at 2.6 mph is a great start! Keep up the good work and you'll be doing much more before you know it. I still find the first 10 minutes the hardest but then it really does get easier. BJ
