I figured. Thanks for the input.
It is an apple to orange comparison...however, keeping your cardio fitness will help you retain it until you get back to running.
I wish you a SPEEDY RECOVERY!
In my opinion, they don't compare at all...running is so much harder than working out on the elliptical. Before I started running I could hammer the elliptical for an hour straight with high resistance so I thought it would be an easy transition to start running, and boy was I wrong! If you're going to compare the elliptical to anything, I think the bike would be closer.

In my opinion, you really can't compare the two. It's like the apples and oranges deal.

How would you equate time/distance on an elliptical to time and distance running?
Given that I am on the Injured Reserve, I am cross training a lot. I had a really good elliptical workout yesterday. Kept my heart rate up over 140 for 36 minutes, steady breathing, lots of sweating, distance clocked at 3.1 miles.
I am assuming it is not a 1:1 ratio...meaning: I did not do the equivelent of a 36 minute 5k.
So, how would you compare the 2 or is it an apple to orange deal where there can't be an accurate comparison?
