After 2 1/2 years of looking for a house that was everything we were looking for, putting in offers on a few of them only to have the deals fall apart, we were finally looking at having an offer accepted. I got the phone call while enjoying a beer at Highland Brewing's "Little Hump Spring Ale" release party. We had ordered a couple of "Bulgogi Hot Dogs" from the "El Kimchi" hot dog stand and I was going to retrieve the hot dogs when my phone rang. It was my real estate agent. Offer Accepted! We were going to be homeowners in a new one acre house on the edge of the Blue Ridge Parkway National Forest. The Mountains-to-Sea trail would be literally 200 yards out of my back door. This was going to be the best news for my running in a long time as I could come in from work, throw on some shorts and hit the trail. And as all of this was dawning on me, I slipped on the hill as I was talking to the agent and retrieving our hot dogs....and broke my leg.
Nearly 6 months later and 20 pounds heavier (yeah, alcohol was my favorite painkiller during my recuperation), I'm back to running. I broke my tibia and severely sprained my ankle. Leg is fine but I can only run 3x per week right now or my ankle flares up. Anyway, I'm also a member of a nearby gym and I want to start getting my money's worth by going in and doing some exercise on my off day. Needs to be fast (20-30 minutes of work) and keep me off my ankle. Anybody got any ideas?
