Good luck on the recovery. I haven't been "allowed" to run for many
years now (bad knees), and, while I'm not as fast a skier as I could be,
with a bit of thought, I've found plenty of other ways to train that will
do. Roller skiing, biking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, etc. should
provide most of what you need.
