comment Weight is higher in the Evening than the Morning?
So that others don't have to look it up like I did, 0.25 stone (a unit of mass) is equal to 3.5 lbs or 1.6 kg.

comment Is 10,10,10 as good as 30?
If your knees are bad, walking downhill with weak legs may harm them more than running would! Try to take a zig-zag path down the hill to share the load with other muscle and ligament groups, and avoid planting hard on your heels at all costs.

comment Tingling in fingertips and lips on a hard run
When you say "Bent at greater than a 90 degree angle", do you mean that they're too straight (angle between forearm and humerus > 90) or that they're too bent (angle between forearm and rest > 90)?

comment How to strengthen the “foot muscle”
+1, contingent on inclusion of "ramp up slowly". Your feet need a lot more joint and tendon strengthening and give less feedback than other muscle areas. I think 10% is a little much, though - that would be close to 2km after a month, and a marathon after two months.

Wait - Isn't 1 in conflict with 3 and 4?

comment How do I prevent chafing?
Are you wearing the compression shorts under (or over) biking shorts, or instead of biking shorts? I suggest liner shorts over compression shorts, like these from Nashbar for biking, if you're not wearing ordinary bike shorts.

comment Exercises for a programmer sitting by the PC all day
Not exactly an exercise, but a standing desk or balance-ball seat is a great addition to your office which will reduce some of the impacts that these exercises attempt to counteract.

comment Gaining weight without gaining fat
What kind of running do you suggest? Distance runners, as a general rule, are also underweight (I'm one of the bulkiest guys in my circle at 6' and 140 lbs, a BMI of 19 - don't have a recent body fat percentage measurement)
