<= 30 minutes

I run 4 miles in 27 minutes though which is around a 9.0 mph pace.

My record is an hour walking on an incline, burned about 500 calories. Did that a couple of times. When I was running on it I burned 250 to 300 calories but I don't remember the exact times, it was under a half hour though. My biggest gym accomplishments were cardio related. I went to an chain gym and there only one bench that was in use 99 percent of the time so I got to bench only the bar once for a couple of reps. Most of my strength training consisted of dumbells, machines and fix barbell bars, had so much fun and it was fit to boot! :pachaha:

Zero minutes, Incredibly boring. If you need cardio go outside and go for a run.
Nah.

Treadmill succeeds where outdoors fail.

You're half right. It can be boring.

Boredom is your mind or body not being stimulated and giving you the cue "just stop" "do something else" "what do you have to prove"

Once you overcome that and build that mental strength, anything becomes easy.

When you run outside there is psychological stimulation. You run past trees, dips, grass, various markers or set points that let you know you're going somewhere or you've gotten somewhere.

You build that mental toughness on the treadmill. Even marathoners will tell you that.

I try to do at least 30 to 45 minutes on the treadmill. I'm not as fast as I used to be, but I jump on it to maintain and mostly do incline.

I love the threadmill. I bought one during the pandemic and it is worth the small investment considering we get the 4 seasons here every year. I usually do around 30-45 minutes between 5-6.5 speed. As someone said, it can get “boring” at times, but you build your bones on the treadmill. Outside is the bonus round
