What I did find was that when we weren't underway, I could always run. Sure, it's shit for the knees, but you can get it done pretty quickly too. You can run for 20-30 minutes and all but be done. If you're not getting enough to get it done in 30 minutes, run faster. If you can sprint for 30 minutes, you're in shape!
So yes, running regularly and eating right = not fat.... But boredom might kill you too!
Yeah, I hate cardio for simply that reason, boredom. I hate running on treadmills as well. I hate running, period. But I know it's good for some cardio. I do the eliptical after a workout as right now my knees just can't take the pounding of running anymore.
