>Cross Training>Best alternative to running?
In the Gym
Staircllimber - not sure. I haven't hear any real success stories.
Spinning - way behind the first 2 and I don't know about climber.
I know runners who have come back strong after using elliptical while injured. Two of them are 2:40's marathoners. It's supposed to be next best machine after treadmill for runners. You can set the treadmill on incline to simulate hills. Doesn't your gym have one?
Reaching 1,243 in 2008 -- one day, one week, one mile at a time.
In it for the long run..

Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
