Help! Can't do any compound lifts for 4-6 weeks!

Due to a rib injury, I can't do any compound lifts for 4-6 weeks.

I usually do strength training 4 times a week, mostly centred around squats & deadlifts. All I can do now for 4-6 weeks is walking on the treadmill (with incline) and maybe the elliptical trainer. I guess this will force me to improve my endurance (which sucks).

How often and what sort of progressive endurance training should I do? High Intensity Interval Training with incline on treadmill?? Long & Steady cardio?? How many times a week and how long should the sessions be??

Thanks for your input!
