I'm gradually getting back into training after being out of action for four months with a lower back/pelvic/groin injury. As I still can't run I'm doing cardio work in the gym - elliptical trainer and power walking with a high incline on the treadmill - and I'm regaining some fitness.
However I don't want to spend too much time in the gym and I've been thinking about Nordic walking as a cross training activity until I can run again (that may be some time yet).
Has anyone any experience of Nordic walking as cross training? If so I'd appreciate some advice on choice of poles etc..
