I have an awesome app on my phone called Zombies, Run! I've only ever used it for road running, but I've started using it on the indoor track at my gym as well, which I'm really enjoying.
I've recently been injured and so unable to go to gym due to damaged muscles around my ribs from coughing (weird, I know right?) which besides being incredibly painful, was very irritating. You don't really realise how much you use that part of your body until every little thing you pick up hurts, including the tiny human that insists on being picked up continually.
This means no weights. No rowing machine. No swimming. Pretty much everything I was doing at the gym. It of course didn't help that I couldn't do cardio because I was coughing almost constantly.
Luckily I'm on the road to recovery (this has been a ROUGH winter people!) I may still have sore ribs but at least I'm not coughing any more, so I can't do any resistance training or weights, but I can now do cardio.
Rule No. 1 - Cardio!
And what better way than to run away from zombies than on an indoor climate controlled track? While I love running on the indoor track it can get a bit boring looking at the same landscape (or lack of in this case) continually, so this makes things quite significantly more fun. The story unfolds as you run, no matter what speed you're going although obviously you're encouraged to run most of the time.
