davidography asks via Twitter: @bengreenfield Is it harmful to exercise over the top of soreness from a previous workout?
Mike asks:  I've had PF for a while in 1 foot.  I had it about 1 yr ago and went to a great podiatrist who gave me 2 cortizone shots 1 wk apart, along w/ some icing and strengthening exercises, went away completely. About 2 wks ago, I changed my running style from a heel plant to a midfoot plant and the same PF came back in the same foot. I've been to Phy Therapy and have tried icing, stretching, nightsplint, massaging, orthotics, everything.  It doesnt hurt when I run. Do you know of anything else I could try to heal this?
Sean asks: While we are on the topic of male underwear, I have a male fitness related question.  I'm not sure how to word this to make it appropriate for the podcast, but here it goes.  While working out hard, I notice that my penis shrinks considerable, often referred to as ‘gym dick'.  It happens when I am training with weights and cardio.  It feels rather uncomfortable and I am wondering if there's anything to be worried about.  I've heard a couple reasons for this happening, first, that it is the body's primal instinct to protect itself during strenuous activity, and second, the body is focusing on sending blood to other areas of the body that need it more.  Does that seem accurate and does it have anything to do with the type of underwear I use?
Christian asks: Do you burn more calories exercising in the cold – trying to keep core temp up- or in the heat – trying to keep core temp down? When I do my long distance runs – 20-25 miles each week, I sweat slot.  My socks are soaked by mike 18.  Then I start to get hot spots and blisters. Any suggestions about running socks?
Tom asks: I'm a 53 year old ultradistance runner/cyclist who is “on the razor” putting in 3-4 hours of training on most days. 1) what is your opinion of fruit and vegetable supplements?  I am considering Juice Festiv from Sam's Club. What benefits might I expect to receive from taking this product? 2)  I sometimes feel overtrained and lethargic.  My diet is borderline vegan. Would switching from soy to whey protein in my smoothies give me additional energy?
Tommy asks: I'm conflicted on purchasing overseas organic vs U.S. non-organic foods. After reading Thrive, by Brandon Fraizer, I learned that half of the green house gas admission in North America is from the transportation of food. For example, I'm stuck at the grocery store wondering if it's more beneficial to buy organic apples from Chili, or non-organic apples from Washington. Should I save Earth or save myself?
