I hear you. I run about 25-30k per week, which is not that much. I run outside mostly up a mountain and on pebbles/soil path-no concrete. During the winter, I hit the gym for the treadmill. I think I'll be ok. Nothing competitive, though.
Try interval training on one of those bikes that has a fixed back. That way you can put all your effort into working out as hard as you can without worrying about balance or technique. Do it for 16 minutes.

BTW why do chicks love jogging so much? Does anyone know?
I run Marathons/Half Marathons so I run about 25-30 miles a week and up it at certain points of the training cycle.

I run not only for the physical fitness but for the mental fitness. The quiet time away from work and the kids does wonders for stress.

Two words: Recumbent Bike

You can drink, do the Times crossword (except for Friday -too hard without having to think), watch TV, eat, read, nap......all the stuff a good exercise routine requires.
