    I did Hills on the treadmill for 20 minutes today. I was a little nervous given that I'm still limping from the stroke. But I figured what the hell, I'll give it a try. I'm feeling a little sore but pretty damn good otherwise.

    Next stop? Mount Everest!

    Wonderful to hear your progress. But may I suggest, maybe at this stages you concentrate on more cardio , you know ,maybe a 40 min easy ,pleasureable jogging then a out of breath HILL for 20 minute. You can always do those thing latter. Exercise should be fun,fun,fun. If it not fun, you will not stick to it.

    The new treadmills at my gym have a training program I love. I think it's called "Dynamic Heart Rate." You tell it what range you want your heart rate to cycle through and the max speed you want the treadmill go. Then as you're jogging/walking, the treadmill adjusts the incline to cycle your heart rate back and forth between the minimum and maximum. It completely breaks up the monotony of using a treadmill. If your treadmills don't have this feature, you could try to imitate it by manually adjusting the controls.
