You can increase you speed and duration of time that you spend on a treadmill without noticing much. One trick to doing this is by increasing you time by one minute every other day, and increasing you speed by 0.1 mph every other day. Here’s an example: Week 1 Monday 20 minutes @ 6.0 mph Tuesday 21 minutes @ 6.0 mph Wednesday 21 minutes @ 6.1 mph Thursday 22 minutes @ 6.1 mph Friday 22 minutes @ 6.2 mph
At the end of 4 weeks, you will have increased you speed by 1.0 mph and you duration will increase by 10 minutes. Since you’ve done this so incrementally, you will hardly notice the extra effort you are putting forth.
