Hello everyone, well after injury after injury i'm serioulsy considering packing in running for a while to see if my body will recover 100% over time. Most of my injuries seem to be impact related so i immedialty started thinking of various ways of training that would keep me at a decent state of fitness wilst minimising impact,hence my elliptical trainer thread..........has any used one,how often do you use it,hows does it compare to a workout achieved whilst running(lets say time for time to keep things simple).
Ive also had thoughts about rowing machines and ofcourse the trusty old bike. I'm not keen on swimming however,ive tried this in the past and was really dissapointed with my level of fitness when i came back to running.
Any suggestions folks?
