an amazing likeness
Have you considered heading out to your gym and giving the elliptical a go. If it hurts, stop and walk on the treadmill. If it doesn't hurt yeah -- you got a workout.
I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day.
Well, yeah, for now I'm just waiting for my babysitter aka husband to come take over! I'm so paranoid about injuries that I worry about setting myself back if I attempt and fail on the elliptical (which I know isn't the reality). And if incline walking hurts too then I'm out fuel and diesel is not cheap.
Does your gym have a upper-body bike machine ? If so, they offer a great cardio workout that doesn't use your legs...so if elliptical and treadmill don't work...you still get cardio. I used one for months while leg damage healed and it was heck of a hard workout.
