comment How does one get past mental running barriers?
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.

comment How exactly does one execute an interval training properly?
@Tracyat2bactive - Doing intervals with lesser/active recovery like that is more of a threshold workout than an interval workout. Threshold is done at or near race pace, on short recovery periods. Intervals are done faster than race pace with long recovery. Intervals increase top end speed, threshold increases the time you can spend at the faster pace.

comment Will eating only protein cause me to lose weight faster without muscle spoiling?
@Chad - It's unclear if it is the parasite load or it is their short life expectancy at the time the low cholesterol samples were taken. If you have some studies showing that internal parasites lower cholesterol I'd be interested in reading them, I haven't seen anything like that. Although, I don't see anywhere in the question or my answer about specific cholesterol levels.

comment Eat more or less to loose fat and gain muscle
Starvation mode is a myth, however metabolic slowdown is a proven fact. I find it odd that people will accept that exercise increases your metabolism, yet refuse to acknowledge that lack of exercise will result in a slower metabolism.

comment Training Plan for High School 3-5km cross-country Run
Daniels is a good read. I'll dig up the program I wrote for my cousin (Colorado 5A x-country) and post that as another reference for you.

comment How exactly does one execute an interval training properly?
@RenéVanBelzen - 1: Very quickly. If it takes you 100m of 400m to get to speed, you're not really doing the interval correctly. and 2: Whatever you feel like. As long as what ever you do between intervals doesn't make it harder/impossible to meet your goal time, do what you like.

comment How can I learn to kick with a different pattern?
@IvoFlipse - Then there is something else going on. You should be able to switch kick counts at any time with no real impact. I can go from 2 to 8 and back many times in a race depending on need.

comment Constant fatigue
If it's an answer that "could be so many things", it needs clarification before an answer can be given, or else it's off topic as too broad. From the Help section (Which I see you have not read yet) - "If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much."
