I'm surprised by the quality of some About.com articles, they even use journals as references at times

comment Does eating late at night cause weight gain?
I'm pretty sure your metabolism, hormones and enzymes in your body and the way food is digested will have a say in it. Sadly, all the answers are more opinionated than based on facts...

comment Do the heavy squats in crossfit endurance program help with running performance
Perhaps describe what you mean by crossfit endurance program? Because you don't hear long(er) distance runners about weight lifting very often, so I'm curious what kind of workout you would be doing

comment Is there a rule of thumb for setting running goals?
While I applaud you for managing to to train up to a marathon in such a short time, this doesn't really help him decide how often he should be running and whether to use interval trainings or recovery runs.

Adidas MiCoach has an option on their website to create a training schedule based on your goal and current level of fitness. These workouts seem very balanced and have similar variations as those in @Chris S's answer. Best of all: it's all free (AFAIK).

comment Is there a specific, efficient way to pedal a road bike?
I honestly don't expect physicists to know more about muscle physiology or anatomy ;-) But your answer is sufficient to answer the question anyway. If they want to know what the best cycling technique is, they should ask another question.
