I do walk on a treadmill when I have no other choice but it is too hard on my body to do it for very long so I tend to walk in 10-15 minute increments up to maybe 45 min max - the treadmills make me dizzy and the steady pace often leaves me aching, although I can walk for a couple of hours without feeling any after effects when I walk 'normally.'
Another factor for me is that my dogs want and need to be walked and obviously the treadmill doesn't help with that so I combine their needs with my needs and we usually walk outside at least twice a day. Still, it's great to have the treadmill as an alternative when the weather is yucky outside! Good luck!
