Two weeks into my pulled hamstring doldrums... What's your favorite "I'm injured and can't run" workout? Tonight I did 40 mins on elliptical trainer and some weights but looking for that endorphin rush that only comes with running... suggestions welcome :)

So sorry to hear this Kelly. One thing I would do right away is buy some arthritis patches. I think they are about 1.50 each. When I had hamstring issues, I wore these patches day and night for a few days. I was able to run without pain in just a few weeks.

So I hit 56 years old last Aug 2nd. I had a knee injury that required surgery so I am no longer long distance running...Ok it is what it is, so why should this stop things, so here is my question, Is anybody interested in weight lifting, I would like to post my successes in my new journey in weight lifting as a senior citizen lol. Is this something that is allowed on the Ujena Fit Club, lets face it "it is the Ujena Fit Club" Right Bob anyway is this a thing on the Ujena Fit Club

Good to have you with us Ron. Our focus is running but we know some people can't run any more. The key thing is to keep moving. Weight training is one good way to do it. If you can you should mix in walking too.
