comment Heart rate monitoring & tracking with the Samsung Galaxy Gear (or similar) Smartwatch. Possible?
@MattChan - well, the rules seem so ambiguous that I'm not sure how to reword it to be more specific to one product without it becoming a shopping question. Furthermore, I don't really care which brand/model watch I use. I just want to know if any current smartwatch could do all this. Thanks

Thanks. That info helps. FYI, a strapless monitor won't do r-r interval heart beat monitoring. They are generally not nearly as accurate as strap-based monitors.

comment Calf muscle recovery time when adapting to forefoot/barefoot running?
You said, "... recommend a few more (2-3) days of light activity to allow the soreness to completely go away..." In hindsight that was the right advice. I actually went ahead and ran the day I posted this (before reading the reply) and it turned out to be too soon.

comment How can I improve my running form?
I could have written this same answer, word for word! I even got inspired by the same YouTube video. I did the same frame-by-frame video analysis. Changing my form eliminated my knee pain. My calves still haven't built up all the way either. I read that it can take six months. I never would have believed it, but now I can see that it might indeed take that long.
