My cardio routine is to walk on a treadmill at the highest incline with 3.1 speed for half an hour, if I were to switch to a treadmill that does not support incline, how much longer do I have to walk to makeup for the fact that there is no incline? I don't want to run because I am overweight and the treadmill pauses every time I take a step running(cheap quality).

i think you should run outside or invest in a new treadmill. 30 min walking aint gonna do much

I've been walking about 3.5 miles every morning for the last few months as my cardio, and so far that's been working for me. Takes about an hour a day. I'd suggest walking outside though, walking an hour on a treadmill will most likely bore you.
