comment Why rest between sets?
Between what kind of repetitions? What kind of workout? How intensive is the workout? This questions is far too general

comment What swimming technique is more effective for a cardio workout?
Note: I'm coming from a waterpolo background, which 'overly' focuses on short distance sprints. Therefor, your mileage may vary with the best size of the intervals. I'd suggest asking a different question when you want a more tailored advice on a training program

comment Home Gym: Is an elliptical trainer alone enough?
That would have been good to know beforehand ;-) BTW: another good thing of the elliptical is that opposed to cycling, you're off your butt which makes the workout harder. Also compared to a treadmill, there's no 'hard' landing which is nicer on your knees (and other joints)

comment Improve breathing and increase lung capacity
How 'fit' are you? Because there's huge difference in lung capacity between a marathon runner and a couch potato! If you're really worried, you could get a check up to have a VO2max test, where they monitor your heart, blood and lungs. That should help you detect any 'bottlenecks'

comment Experiences with 'barefoot' running
+1 If only for not too much emphases on going slowly! Besides your 'safe' approach should be a general guideline for everyone. Simply stop if it starts to hurt, else go for it and keep going!

comment What can I use to monitor my running workout?
Well since there's no Android version, I can't confirm it yet @IntuitionHQ. But the system works perfect without your phone! The only thing the phone adds is the gps tracking, so your running speed and location.

comment Lungs on Fire When Running
Nike has started a project in some countries: Start to Run that uses exactly the same kind of program as Couch to 5k. This program nearly guarantees you can learn how to run if you also follow my answer :-)
