comment Are there any disadvantages, besides discomfort, to letting water enter your nose?
I grew up a competitive swimmer, and other than nose plugs, there's no way to prevent water up the nose on occasion. Good answer overall, +1.

comment Is it better to reschedule workout than skip it?
@Herokiller - Meh. Either skip it and move on, or double up as marten suggests. Either way, it's not really going to make much of a difference. If you want, since it's on a trip, you could do a day of body weight exercises.

comment Are stretch marks normal?
Oh, yes, they can definitely become more noticeable as there is more blood in the vessels near the skin. That is != to causing them, though. :)

comment What are some abdominal exercises for a person with lack of a left iliac crest, left gluteal muscles, and scoliosis?
Where did they reattach the tendons of your abdominus? Lower on the iliac?

comment Are stretch marks normal?
You won't get stretch marks from a single weightlifting session. Your skin is elastic enough to handle that. Stretch marks are from long term, rapid gain in weight/height (Such as a pregnancy, growth spurt, etc) and are a result of tearing in the skin. You can get them over time, and you may be noticing them after a session, but a single session doesn't create them.

comment What exercises can someone with Ligamentous laxity do for supple and strong muscles
@lontgomjr - I would second the Tai Chi. You may be able to supplement with online videos, most "commercial" tai chi can be done that way following along. You could also ask about tai chi over on the martial arts SE site.

comment Is the optimal cadence for racing the same as for conditioning?
@Lysander - Pretty much the latter. Running is running. If you're running for fitness, then you're still running, you just aren't doing the high intensity, up tempo work, and your average pace can be slower. I find that when I'm just running for fitness, I have an average cadence in the 150-160 range, and as I go faster, my stride naturally increases very slightly and my cadence goes up into the 170-190 range depending on my intensity at the time.

comment Optimal cadence for endurance running
@AlexPritchard - Probably both. :) As you get more efficient as a runner, your pace will increase for the same cadence, and the faster you run, the more your cadence will increase as well.
