I would have guessed elliptical would work -- don't you just put your foot flat on a board and move the board, but the foot stays stationary relative to the board? Of course, it's probably smarter not to risk anything that uses the foot at all, and I'm just a typical dumb runner
Bet you could do crunches. Speaking of which I could do them too. I think about them from time to time, and resolve to start doing them. But I never get around to the actual doing -- I forget, or I say to myself, "After this goal race is over, b/c I don't want to risk getting sore right before it." For example, I am racing a goal 10K this Sunday, so no new exercises...
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Maybe elliptical would be ok. It has to start feeling better before I do anything though. I have to say I'm surprised that it continues to be as 'uncomfortable' (isn't that the word doctors use?) as it has been.
Crunches just sound like "exercise", which I am averse to.

Need to find a way to make that stuff as addictive as running. Let me know if you find one.
