backinskinnyjeans, you crack me up! I am so glad you tried it and it's great that you modified the workout too! You raise a good point that if a routine is too hard for you, all you have to do is change the incline and/or speed. You go Girl :)

My treadmill uses too much electricity but I wouldn't mind trying this at the gym.

Girrly007-- that would suck! I am lucky, I know. I have friends with bad allergies and I wouldn't wish that on anyone!

I totally agree with you, Neutral, but some of us (like me) have such severe allergies and asthma that we can't enjoy a hike or exercise outside. Until they find a cure for allergies, I'm stuck on the treadmill...

I'm sure it's a good workout, but actual hiking is so much more pleasant since you can look at nature and feel the breeze and sun, etc. I could never psych myself into believing a treadmill workout was hiking. I'd do this to train for some hiking, though.
