2 hours on the elliptical? At my local gym here by the beach, that's two precious hours of eye candy watching... it makes cardio time go by fast! Hot strippers and cocktail waitresses have to work out somewhere right? I'm glad you're cranking it up in time for the race. Like you said, you now know the answer to the question... You Are Doing all you can do to prepare, now its time to have fun (well once the flag drops!).
I wish there was eye candy. I did put my 1.5 year old girl on the computer part of the elliptical and she sat there for 15 minutes and handed me a water bottle when needed. That broke up some of the monotony. Still boring as hell but I needed to do it.
In the engine. New rod, main bearings, seals throughout, went through the trans, new clutch, valves, valve guides, valve seals, follower bearings, cam bearings, cam chain and a few other bits.
