Sick of hopping on the elliptical on your XT days? Try one of these 16 cross training alternatives:

You joined in on a pick-up soccer game this weekend with friends or went kayaking on vacation and felt the burn. Can these activities work for the XT spot on the training calendar or should you still head to the gym for a less exciting cross-training session? “What you have to decide is what purpose it is going to serve,” said Dr. Kevin Vincent, MD, Ph.D, the director of the University of Florida Running Clinic.
