comment How does one get past mental running barriers?
No, ingesting carb/protein in a 3:1 ratio (Pretty much the ratio that is in milk) is well proven as a post endurance exercise supplement. I'm referring to your implied causational link between carbohydrate consumption and effect on neurotransmitters, and any link between carbohydrate depletion and loss of motivation.

Do you have any references for this?

comment I have a back pain from sitting. Can I still run?
This is a highly personal answer, and most likely only applicable to a small segment of the population. Also, the "theory" on the muscle control from the brain is wild conjecture and a poor understanding of nerve enervation in skeletal muscle.

comment Do handstand push ups and pike push ups work the posterior deltoid
@DaveLiepmann - Actually, if the anterior deltoid becomes more developed in relation to the posterior, it can promote a rounded shoulder look. You can see this in a lot of swimmers, since swimming emphasizes ant/medial over posterior deltoid development.

comment Angiogenesis due to exercise
@DarkoSarovic - Would that apply as much in endurance exercise, where the body is much more relaxed than in power based exercise? Include in this Frank-Starling, where the time of contraction is a contributor to the contractile forces on the arteries/veins. If the majority of the muscles between the working muscle and the heart are relatively relaxed, the tensile force should be lessened as well. I get where you're coming from on this, it's making for interesting reading.

When was the last time you set a running goal? A race, or event (Ragnar, tough mudder, etc)?

comment Stamina for running long
Couch to 5k and the Galloway run/walk programs are going to be your best bet. Excellent recommendation.

comment Angiogenesis due to exercise
@DarkoSarovic - From what I've been reading, the arteries can expand up to 4x as needed, so not as much need to increase in diameter.

comment Angiogenesis due to exercise
I am not sure, I am familiar with the concepts but haven't studied them since college. However, I would think by adding more capillaries to the endpoint would reduce pressure, not increase it, as the same amount of blood is spread out among X% more capillaries.

comment Is it fine to train in the sauna?
I'm not familiar with the MdS, is there an exercise component or is it just the distances? I'm not sure how doing pushups and squats in a sauna will prepare you for the running.
