comment How can I find my old race results?
The LA Marathon site has them online to 2000, and says "Send request, we may have older". Other than that, unless the race is still around and maintains a site, the result sites and/or possibly archived newspaper images, etc are going to be your only options. You could possibly also go on running sites and ask if people still have them. I have some of my tri/duathlon results from the mid 80's.

comment What products are available that attach to existing fitness machines (weights/treadmills/cardio etc) to track usage?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about tracking usage on a machine, not using the machine in a fitness program.

comment What happens when you tend to lay in bed all day?
@Ellocomotive - (And yes, I realize this is a year old) By that measure you could claim anything as being on topic. From the help section on "what not to ask" - questions on wellness, general health, medical advice and injuries unrelated to exercise. This is wellness/general health, and is not related to an ongoing exercise program. It's about a man who sits in bed all day, nothing more.

There are at least 4 different types of stretching. You are confusing dynamic and ballistic.

comment Fix for excessive saliva/mucous during workouts?
Please don't use terms that you don't fully understand, or if you do, explain what the issue might be. "could be some issue" is so vague that it is meaningless.

comment Training advice on long-distance running for a newbie
@theonlydanever - A: Only if you want. Train for what you will race, but they are close enough in distance it won't make much of a difference at all. B: Only if you want. Remember, muscle weighs more and consumes more oxygen. C: Race specific training (including trail/fell) never hurts. :)

comment What rowing machines are best for both cardio and strength training?
It's hard to phrase a shopping recommendation and be on topic, but if you put it a little more in the style of "here's my goals, and I'm looking at X, Y an Z. Which of these best supports achieving what I want", I'll retract my close vote. It's always a borderline question, but that would be much closer than the current form.

comment What rowing machines are best for both cardio and strength training?
I understand that, but on most SE sites across the board, "What ____ is best" questions are off topic as a rule. Even for a good reviewer, it's still a personal opinion.

Unfortunately off topic - From the help section on what to avoid asking: every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?” Asking for a "best" anything is just going to result in personal opinion answers.

comment Approx. how many calories can I figure I burn per mile?
@Jan - Of course you don't believe it, because you want the opposite to be true, so you bring up all the extreme arguments. Obviously, if you have health problems or body necessities (such as lactose intolerance), you should avoid certain foods. However, you still have to take care to add the missing things that those foods would give you. And if you hate fish, obviously don't eat fish, but that is a small portion of the protein group.

comment Taping the back for good posture
@TVMohini - We expect questions about such things as posture to be related to an ongoing fitness program. Simply saying "I have bad posture, how do I correct it?" is general medical advice and off topic. It needs to be related to your own fitness program and what the impact of bad posture is.

This is not related to physical fitness and is off topic for the site.

comment Approx. how many calories can I figure I burn per mile?
@Jan - Yes, I suppose that is true. However vegans jump through a lot of unnecessary hoops to make sure that they get all their macronutrients, (esp. complete proteins), as well as many vitamins/minerals that only come in large amounts in animal protein. I still think it's dumb, and if not planned right, you will suffer nutritional deficiencies.

comment Hit my fat percentage wall, help me out I would give it all
@howtechstuffworks - You should have put all of that in your original question. However, you can't "hit that belly fat", spot reduction is a myth. And only you can tell if it's too ambitious.

comment Is it harmful not to wear an underwear while running?
@Soccerman - And of course you have empirical data to support that they did this and did not suffer injury as a result, yes? Don't make dumb correlations that have no meaning.
