comment Does this wear pattern on shoes indicate there is something wrong with gait?
@JohnP I've seen this wear pattern everywhere, because almost everybody has it, especially on their regular shoes. Most people don't walk a lot with their running shoes though, so you see it less there. Also, most running shoes have more durable material at the heel compared to regular shoes

comment Time window for fitness tracking - four weeks or longer?
Based on my recent Runkeeper records (~2+ years) I'd say having more data is definitely useful for spotting trends

comment Eat more or less to loose fat and gain muscle
Given you mention credible studies, it would benefit your answer if you could provide some to substantiate your claims

comment How can I learn to kick with a different pattern?
@JohnP in my case the problem is going from a 2 to a 4 beat kick. I'm running out of air trying to increase the frequency

comment Stamina for running long
Amen for using a tried and tested program like Couch To 5k. I've seen plenty of people picking up running after following that program

comment How can I learn to kick with a different pattern?
I can tell from experience that its hard, so you're definitely not the only one having this problem. I'm curious to hear from any swimming trainers how they deal with this

If you don't use it, you lose it!

comment Can I use butterfly as resistance training?
You can make swimming harder by using paddles that increase the surface of your hands or wear a t-shirt which will significantly increase the load

comment How to run without damaging your feet, knees or hips.
@BenCrowell after reading the summary of the thesis, the second part should cover 'exercise related lower leg pain', which covers mostly overuse injuries. Either way, while the main gists of my answer is probably still correct (albeit useless in practice), its probably in dire need of an update given the studies that have been published in the past few years.

comment How to run without damaging your feet, knees or hips.
@Ben I think I fixed the link to the Willems thesis, the university apparently changed its ID. I changed the name to Murphy et al, though I agree its probably not the best citation. Please do note that the answer is over 2.5 years old, there has been a lot of research in this area lately. Also, I think you might like Payne's blog about running research, this time I'm sure the name is correct :-)

comment How to prevent back pain after a long day of standing
Care to summarize some of the information from that link? If the link dies, your answer has no real content

Sure it can @MDMoore313, why else would some people get stress fractures from running with them?

comment How to calculate body fat using calipers?
It probably refers to the Illium, which is part of the hip bone (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_bone)

comment Feet turned out while running
Do you experience pain while running with your toes pointing outwards? If not, then just ignore what the 'experts' say and listen to your body

comment What can I use to monitor my running workout?
Care to add some screenshots and other information you can find about it. I personally haven't used it, but that's more because I already have too many tracking apps

comment What can I use to monitor my running workout?
I love Sports Tracker too, but could you please add some more information and possibly some images to make the answer more on par with the others?

comment Maintenance of the Flexor Hallucis Longus muscle for Long-distance Running?
What do you mean with 'maintain'? Your body isn't exactly a machine you can grease right on the spot where its a bit stiff. Also, why are you singling out a single muscle? What often happens is that the weakest link gives you problems. If you focus solely on your weakest link, guess who's going to give you trouble next? The second weakest link, so I'd suggest a more holistic approach.
