comment Experiences with 'barefoot' running
Sadly you'll have to wait until after the private beta to get other experts in. But in its current shape, the question does invite users to just add their opinion, rather than 'facts'

comment Experiences with 'barefoot' running
Rather than hearing ones personal experience, perhaps it would be better to get someone from a running shoe shop to share first hand experiences based on those of multiple runners. As far as I know there's a general lack of research on this topic at this moment, because they often exclude subjects with a history of injuries. Ironically, those are often the ones who claim the best results with minimal shoes...

comment Should I run when it is cold?
+1 Dressing in layers definitely helps against the cold. Make sure to keep the wind from under your clothes (wear tight, functional clothing) and cover up your ears/hair for more comfort

Perhaps we should add some more specific training exercises, like interval training or practicing sprints?

comment Technique for identifying potential injury weak spots
@Cornelius I think this question might be a bit too general, there's a large difference in types of workout and the way 'weak spots' reveal themselves. A weight lifter doesn't get the same problems as a marathon runner or vice versa

What would your goal be? Loose weight, increase overall fitness, be able to run a 10K? Now I can tell you to start doing sit-ups or buy half a gym and it would qualify :-)

It seems the app changed quite a bit since the last time I tried it, guess I should give it another shot :-)
