I'm going to the doctor in a couple of hours, so in the meantime I'll distract you with something unrelated. The elliptical machine.

"Elliptigo." How does that
dude get his name on
EVERYTHING? It must
be his insane leg muscles.
Hate it, hate it, hate it. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again.
First off, it's unnatural: what on earth does that movement imitate?
Secondly, why does it measure "mileage"? What does that even mean? You're not going anywhere. No ground (fake or real) is moving beneath your feet.
And then, insult to injury, the other day I did 40 minutes on the stupid thing and it gave me vertigo. I almost fell leaving the gym and barely made it home without falling. Yuck.
Now this odd green machine I can get behind, though - the Elliptigo. You may have seen it featured on Running is Funny last week. It's an elliptical machine... with wheels. You can click the product link and watch some funny movies about it.
Anyway, deets on the doctor trip later. By now my legs are feeling mostly better so I've convinced myself that I'm just weak.
