comment Am I in a so-called “good running form”?
@inquisitiveIdiot - His distance is fine for the 5k. Most high school x-country are doing about that much. 10k and up he would need to greatly increase his weekly mileage.

@RenéVanBelzen - Your trainer is correct, as "mid distance" on the track is the 800m, 1500m, mile and possibly stretched to the steeplechase. That is much different training than road.

@DanAndrews - I agree. Also, what may be ideal for person A, may not necessarily be ideal for person B.

comment What is the difference between rest and sleep? Can inactivity replace sleep?
There are certain kinds of meditation that can temporarily replace the need for as much sleep, but eventually the body needs sleep, dreaming and rem cycles to continue to function rationally.

You're extrapolating. And badly at that.

comment Food prior to intense cardio
Dehydration causes dizziness, and this has been known for decades. That has nothing to do with the level of electrolytes.

Do you have a source that backs up the electrolyte causing dizziness claim?

comment Ideal Human Nutrition for athletic ability and longevity
Mmm...it's borderline. If you could add something about your current running routine and wanting to support that + healthy life it would be better. It's still a good question as it, but adding that would definitely push it on topic.

comment Why is my swimming fitness so much worse than my cycling and running fitness?
If your technique is good, then breathing is nearly as natural as it is for running or other sports.

comment Why is my swimming fitness so much worse than my cycling and running fitness?
Who are the "others" that say your technique is good? What was your swimming background before starting? Training once a week for 5 months means you've swum about 20 times. It takes much, much longer than that to get proficient at swimming, as swimming is very heavily technique dominated. My bet is on an inefficient kick and poor breathing technique.

comment I have hit a weight loss plateau. Could my lower water intake have something to do with this?
Water has no calories. Sugar does. However, it's more likely that you just need to change your routine around some.

comment fastest way to burn calories?
Elevated metabolism will only count for around 100 calories during that post exercise time, and as far as I am aware that ceases after ~24 hours, not 48.

comment Should I run with this ankle pain?
Brainy, I understand that. But nobody can look at your words and say why you have ankle pain. So, anything we can recommend might make it better, might make it worse, might not have any effect. A medical professional needs to tell you what you can and can't do.

Might also want to check out some of the most recent research on minimalist shoes and increased injury rates.

comment Does this wear pattern on shoes indicate there is something wrong with gait?
@TonnyMadsen - You don't know that. I have a different wear pattern on everyday shoes versus my running shoes.

comment Does this wear pattern on shoes indicate there is something wrong with gait?
@TonnyMadsen - Unless it's directly related to exercise and fitness, it's off topic as a general health question. I could be ok with it if it had been some sort of exercise apparel and the question related to an exercise routine of some kind, but these are casual work shoes.
