If you are generally healthy, I'd start with the manual or level setting on your treadmill and increase your speed to a comfortable fast paced walk. Monitor your heart rate and go as long as you can without your heart going above your target range, or as your time permits. A good rule of thumb for your target heart rate range is to take 220- your age = x X times .65= y X times .80 = z Monitor and try to keep your heart rate in that range of y to z. Do not go above your z value....

Ty. I just started doing a mile a day. Never gave the heart rate any thought. Thanks.
