>Cross Training>So...I know nothing about biking...
Since I can't run for a month (well, we'll see...) I'm going to start biking every day, or at least as much as I can on my sore leg. I bike every day to school, but have never used it as an actual training effort. So how many miles a day is a good solid training ride? Like 20ish? It's probably the same as running: lots of LSD and some days do hills and stuff right? I've heard of clipless pedals but have no clue how to go about buying them, I may just stick to my running shoes on the bike. To stay in some sort of decent running shape, how many miles on the bike should I try to do a day? Thanks, and any other advice would be much appreciated

It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
I think you should not move to clipless pedals when you have a cast -- everyone tells me that the adaptation to clipless pedals generally involves falling over several times in the process.

Yes. And saying "oh shit, oh shit, oh shit" as you fall over while at a complete stop and unable to release your shoe (after DH said he tightened the pedals just a TEENY bit).
If ever a description called out for a video.....
