Cross Training

I really wanted to run today, but after the 10 miles yesterday, seemed like it might be good to rest my ankle.  But I tried using the elliptical and the stationary bike. I found that with both of them, there was no pain at all in my ankle yet I still got a pretty good workout.  So I am going to start using them both a lot while I am up here working.  I did 30 minutes and about 2 miles on the elliptical and 15 minutes and 2 miles on the bike. I felt both in places where I don't feel it when running.  So this sounds like a good plan for the days when I want to take a break from running.  My goal is to get in shape, pick up my speed, and make my ankle stop hurting.  Seems like a good plan.
