I have voted your question as being off topic. If you read through the help section, you will note "What if" questions are not allowed. You can edit your question to try and improve it.

@glougloubarbaki - reread the third paragraph. You're already at that level.

No worries. If the answer is useful, it's all good.

comment Cardio in swimming : long distances or interval training?
@glougloubarbaki - Probably, yes. You are going to get more of your short burst, high intensity work which is more applicable to sparring and class work than slogging through 2km straight. Anything from 50-400m, the shorter you go, the faster it should be. Once a week throw in something like 4x500 or 2x1000 to work on steady state endurance as well.

comment What can explain my feet cramping while using swim fins when I swim in the afternoon/evening?
Late comment but if the fins don't fit your feet, the unconscious tendency is to "grip" with your toes, which can easily lead to foot cramping.

20 mile run, followed by 2 hours of "hard and fast" skipping? Uh huh.

comment How to Increase height naturally? Are those ads gimmicks?
@VPeric - Technically, there are surgeries where you can increase your height. They cut the bone, pull it apart a short distance (less than an inch), and hold it apart with frames while the bone fills in the gap. Incredibly expensive, painful and it can take several treatments over 6 mos-year to gain 1" of height.

comment How to prevent injuries when running with peripheral neuropathy?
I'm with @Grohlier. Technically, yes, you can run. The danger is that if you do injure yourself you won't feel it and can cause major damage. Talk with your primary care provider.

comment How to Increase height naturally? Are those ads gimmicks?
I will correct you, as you are wrong. Your height is genetically determined. It can be impacted negatively by certain diseases and nutritional deficiencies, but it's not a "regional" thing. And you can't overcome your genes by proper exercise to get taller. Your eventual possible maximum height is determined at conception.

Make that a separate question, that's a good training question. I don't think it's been asked on here yet.

That will also adapt, and you'll be able to go longer on less.

comment What is the effect of carb consumption on fat burning during exercise?
@couling - mmm...sort of. Energy from fat is a higher percentage at lower efforts. The higher you go on the effort scale, the more you start getting it from glycogen, both stored and circulating. Even at the extreme ends of the scale, you're still burning both in some percentage. Where it gets funky is the amount burned to sustain the exercise.

comment What is the effect of carb consumption on fat burning during exercise?
Just as an aside - if you are "bonking" at the 60-90 minute mark, either you have some metabolic problem, or you are exercising at near 100% intensity. You should have plenty of available glycogen stores to go longer than 60-90 minutes at submaximal effort levels. For an example, here are two examples of true bonking (Completely running out of glycogen stores, things begin to shut down): youtube.com/watch?v=Zs4lbNPiat0 and youtube.com/watch?v=LKhkvSRQZYo

I understand that English is not your native tongue, however you could at least avoid "netspeak" such as u, ur, pls and spell the words out.

comment Why do we need a resting period?
Resting is not 100% necessary, especially when doing submaximal efforts. I don't have time today, but I will write up an answer in the next couple.
