comment What is the optimal heart rate in the rest phase of high intensity interval training?
OK, good. I just wanted to check it wasn't a bad formula. 220-age is one of the worst myths in exercise science.

Same question - How did you arrive at what your max heart rate is?

How do you know your max heart rate? And please don't tell me it's 220-age.

comment help me adapt the bizzy diet to my needs
Oh, I'd also suggest editing your post to include what you specifically want to achieve. There may be another program (Such as stronglifts or similar) that may be a better fit, but in any case we can't suggest edits to a program if we don't know what your after.

Real food. There is tons of information available, but lean meats, fruits/veggies, carbs with as little processing as possible, healthy fats/oils. Pretty much any diet plan with a "name" (south beach, paleo, pritikin, atkins, etc etc) isn't a sustainable, long term solution.

comment help me adapt the bizzy diet to my needs
For starters, the "bizzy diet" isn't really a diet, it's a workout plan. And for food, I would ditch the supplements and eat real food. Right now your diet consists of mixed veggies, eggs and supplements? That's crap.

Your title and the question don't match. Your question in the text is "is there a better way to track info", your title is "what info should I track".

comment What do we mean by “aerobic” and “anaerobic”?
@Jimsan - Actually, exercising at ANY capacity is either aerobic, anaerobic or some mixture of the two. All that aerobic and anaerobic refer to is the primary energy source/pathway during exercise. "Zones" are arbitrary terms designed to present a complex concept in an easy to understand fashion. I grit my teeth occasionally when I hear HIIT trainees claim "Yeah, I spent a whole hour anaerobic!" So your 80-90%, if you keep that up for more than 2 minutes, you are exercising aerobically. Anaerobic doesn't last more than 30 sec - 2 mins, maximum.

comment Training to not drink in hot weather
@JamesF - I wouldn't worry about it. You're talking about a pound or two of water, that's not going to impact "your range" as much as not having the water will negatively impact both length and quality of your run. I suggest a camelback pack, that's what I use on long runs/rides.

comment Any input on fixing running form with resistance training?
@alesplin - Nope, I didn't miss it. That's only a small factor in the injury rate anyway.

Also, you should look at some of the studies on injury rates among runners that switch to chi/pose/[insert your fad of the day here]

comment How do I check my own form doing weight lifting?
So, in a squat for example, are you supposed to turn your neck to the side while in the middle of the exercise to check your back alignment?

mmm...not much you can do weights wise to counteract a long gait. Mostly it's going to be form drills and concentration.
