I broke down and bought this....
The last two winters I have got myself a gym membership and alternated swimming and running 4 or 5 mornings a week, and although I'm really going to miss is this year I just can't afford it. On top of that, we've been rocked with snow this year and running outside is just not a safe option right now. So, I had to find something to keep me busy until I can get back outside.
I've heard good things about this and am hoping that I find it effective. I'm worried that there won't be enough of a cardio workout (I'm sure the strength training will brutal since I don't really do any) but we'll see how it goes. Perhaps I can start getting up in the morning and walking my dogs for the time being to supplement a little?
Regardless, it's better than the nothing I've been doing since going back to school. My running shoes have been lonely in the closet since September and I MISS IT! This should tie me over until I get back to running.
I hope to start tomorrow morning... so here goes nothin'. We'll see what all the hype is about anyway.
