Yesterday I actually ran for 7 minutes

for the first time in 6 years! or I guess a better word would be "jogged" ... regardless, I went fast on the treadmill and it felt great. Could have even gone longer, but didn't want to overdo it with my knee, given that it was my first time on the treadmill since the surgery and I should just be careful with the impact activities.
Today, I tried the funky looking machine in the corner which ALWAYS has someone on it. It's an Arc Trainer by Cybex and was awesome. It's no impact, like ellipital, but you can change the incline so that you're stepping higher and higher until it feels like you're climbing over boulders! I really felt it in my hams much more than the elliptical. Let's see how I feel in the morning!
