Audio Question from Boštjan @ 00:14:50
Can you gain speed (cycling and running) if you start training at 40 years old and haven't been training before that?
~ In my response, I mention the Joe Bonness interview at Endurance Planet.
Audio Question from Craig @ 00:19:40
Would it be beneficial to do cold and hot adaptation in a particular corresponding season (cold in winter and hot in summer)?

What are the health benefits of gelatine and does a commercially produced gelatine (such as Knox) have the same benefits?
Audio Question from James @ 00:31:23

Audio Question from Jim @ 00:36:01
Do you have any good ski workouts that would also double as good off-season triathlon workouts?

Audio Question from Jorge @ 00:41:30
He recently learned to improve his running form and posture from youtube videos (forward lean and higher cadence) and noticed that he is now running faster with a lower heart rate. Could the changes he has made have lowered his heart rate?
