LOL, I won't be running for a while...I broke my tibia in two places and am still on crutches. When I did it was on pavement. LOL, I just got my bike fixed before my accident...I can't wait to go riding. Better yet, I can't wait till I can walk on my own again. Heck, I can't wait to stand without the crutches...

There's also a risk from falling also. Are you running on a track where there is some cushioning? I would ask your specialist to figure out what your risk for fractures is since your only 30. There's a chart my doctor used that compares your age with your bone density scores. Cycling might be safer than running or using exercise equipment indoors.
