Jenn....that is what I'm doing right now for the same reason that the weather is nasty and slippery outside. I looked on the computer for....elliptical Vs treadmill. The elliptical seems to be the overall workout machine that is not hard on the feet and knee joints and gives you a total body workout by using the bars and petals. The treadmill is the closest to walking outside on the pavement kind of workout but tends to work more of the lower body.
I plan on doing my half marathon on the elliptical.
Hope this helps you my friend.
