|Recumbent bike, for those not in the know.|
I moved on to the elliptical cross-trainer. I was a bit nervous about this, as it mimics running and I wasn't sure how my hamstring would feel about that, but it was surprisingly fine. My heart rate got up to an appropriate level and I was able to work hard enough to sweat. Mind you, I wasn't sweating as much as the very large fellow next to me but then I also didn't have my bulk oozing into his exercise space so that he had to reposition his arms to avoid body contact with me.

It feels like I haven't run in months but, really, it's only been eight days since The Injury. I'm meant to take tomorrow as a rest day and then go back to the gym on Friday. That day's run would have been nine miles, so I'm looking at 1.5 to 2 hours on the cardio equipment. I'll stop if it hurts, though; Sensible and Cautious, that's me!
