Hi Dustin You've made some great progress!!! I just wanted to chime in on the elliptical vs. running. I am a runner and enjoy running outdoors in the warmer months. In the Winter, I take it indoors to the treadmill. This Winter however, I've been doing some pretty high intensity interval workouts, so I've ramped down the running so I don't over do it on my joints. So I've taken to the elliptical for extra cardio. I too always thought that running was far superior to the elliptical. Well to my dismay, I can burn the same if not more calories on the elliptical (according to my heart rate monitor) in the same amount of time. Also, I can sustain the elliptical for a longer period so overall I can actually burn more on the elliptical! Having said that, I still love running and won't give it up

If you are persistent, you will reach your goal. If you are consistent, you will keep it.
