HERE! The only sad part about this crosstraining machine is that it currently retails at $2500. Welp, there's no way I could afford that, but it looks seriously amazing. Its half bike, half run, all awesome. The website
Even if you can't afford the ElliptiGO, the moral of the story is that Josh Cox recommends crosstraining and "downtime" when trying to maintain your level of fitness. Downtime doesn't mean no exercise whatsoever, it just means that you should switch things up once in a while.
Niketown's Running Club with my good friend and soccer teammate, Mario. Apparently runners and walkers of all types meet at Niketown on Newbury Street in Boston on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and decide to run either 3, 5, or 7 miles. After finishing your run, Niketown provides refreshments. I have read in a random blog that they will also occasionally provide speakers discussing various topics involving running (anywhere from shoes, to fueling, to style, to pizazz). I think we are going to try to go this wednesday, but, um, I think I already have plans. Either way, we are hitting this up! (Thanks to massachusetts.cityvoter.com for the photo!)
