Adding side-walking steps it up a notch more. Just face the side rails instead towards the control panel. Then alternate by switching and facing the opposite side rail. If you add this, it will increase your burn. Start slowly until you feel comfortable with it.

i hate taking walk breaks, but i seem to be a little too gung-ho when i return to the treadmill. i'm going try an abbreviated version to get ready to start training for a half marathon.
