comment Squats and deadlifts after knee surgery
Thanks a lot for the nice and well-thought out answer! I have backed off the "big goals" and am sticking to just staying in shape right now which I think will probably work better in the long term.

comment Why do distance running training programs tell you to do long runs so slowly?
Well, it really depends on what your goals are. If you are training to run as fast as you can, you'll definitely want twice a day (almost all elite runners do this). If you're training to keep in shape, then daily or every other day is perfectly fine and probably advisable.

comment I want to run but have a bad knee. How should I deal with it?
PLEASE don't keep running. I beg you. As a collegiate D1 athlete, I ran through my injury 8 months ago and I'm barely able to walk after 7 months of "recovery". My orthopedic surgeon is saying it could be permanent (osteochondral fracture), but there is a slim chance of improvement if I eventually get surgery.

comment Is kale's Vitamin K content a source of MK4?
Yeah, I realized that after I posted it. Now we're in a meta meta discussion.

comment Is kale's Vitamin K content a source of MK4?
I'm not really interested in meta discussions. However, I think you should either allow nutrition questions UNTIL you remove "nutrition" from the title of the site, or go ahead and remove that part of the title quickly. I'm sure I'm not the only one bothered by the rude comments left on these (i.e. "Care to explain.. ?")

From the FAQ, "Topics include exercise and training, nutrition and diets"

I don't know why you closed my question because of YOUR stupidity to not change the title of the site.

I thought the body converted K1 into the MK4 form of K2? Is this not correct?

It doesn't. It relates to the "Nutrition" part of the "Fitness & Nutrition" in big letters at the top of the page.

comment What to do first, stretching or walking?
My track team always does a two lap easy jog before we begin stretching. I'm not sure why, but I assume a D1 coach knows what he's doing.

comment Daily weight variance - as high as 2 or 3 percent?
I wouldn't worry about it too much. I do the same routine everyday and randomly weigh between 140 and 150 lbs at the same time of day.

comment Constantly feeling tired despite sufficient sleep and regular exercises.
This probably isn't it -- but as a last resort, have you had your ferritin (iron) levels checked? My sister was constantly getting tired and finally found out she was anemic. Once she started taking iron, she got her energy back.

comment Will developing my leg muscles improve my running?
Elite athletes weight-train and cross-train as well, although I'm not sure if the purpose is injury prevention or improvements to their running. Gebrselassie both weight-lifts and rides the stationary bike.

comment Will developing my leg muscles improve my running?
VERY good statement. Out of 7 years of running, this is the first year that I cut weight-training out of the program. It is also the first time I have ever been injured (knees), and a severe injury at that -- I'm going on seven months of not being able to walk normally even.

comment Any suggestions on dealing with a longer-term shoulder injury?
Thanks! I'm glad to hear it's feeling better. I think my injury is going to take a lot more patience than I had anticipated as well.

Hey, I just wanted to see how you're doing now. I Googled "long-term pain" because I have it too, and I'm hoping to hear you're getting better.
