Thanks guys - That was my concern, the elliptical not translating to real running, since I want to be able to go for runs outside eventually (even have my route planned!)
I think my plan of attack will be - Get some glucosamine, Keep up my cardio on the elliptical as often as I can and keep trying to jog for 5 min a time! I don't want to start over if I can help it but I also don't want to anger my knees!
Glad to see that everyone else is doing soooo well!! Keep it up guys you all rock!
