Help me use my Garmin GPS device with my Powerbook

I just bought a Garmin Forerunner 205. I love it, it's neat, wow, awesome. But I use an Apple and the software isn't compatible. Can someone walk me through how I can get my PowerBook to recognize the unit (and download the data) when I plug it in via USB and if there are any programs I can use that are similar to the "Training Center" software included?

How best to workout at work?

Bit out of shape, me. Would like to fix that. Our office has a small gym. In this gym is an expected fleet of treadmills, stationary bikes, free weights and a single stair-climber. We've got shower, locker room and changing facilities as well. Given these tools available, what would be my best use of them? Workout before work? After? And which for how long? [more inside]

weightlifting for dummies

Recently I have been getting back in shape. I want to add some weight lifting to my routine but not a lot. I have done it before and I am just not motivated enough to do the alternate days thing, but I enjoy the benefits of strength training. So what are some of the best all around exercises that I could do that would give me the best all body workout in the least time?

How to increase running . foot speed?

How does one increase foot speed? My 12 year old son inherited his lack of foot speed from me. He's thin, skinny and a little below average height. This is not a weight issue, he is just slow. (All of which is subject to change when puberty kicks in full gear) In the meantime, are there exercises or drills he could do to increase his speed? He plays baseball and he fences - being a bit quicker would be a benefit in both.

undue backpain

Back Pain - It's a weekend, and my chiropractor only works tue/thurs in my area filter. I have no idea what I did to deserve this, but I went to the gym for the first time in 2 mos last wednesday (I had been going religiously m/w/f for 8 months working up my running.. i was doing 10 minute miles for 30 minutes before..) because I broke my toe at a company event. I did a decent workout (2.2 mi in 30 min, rest, stretch, then free weights). I felt fine afterwards - no pain, no problems at all. [more inside]

Running and severe nausea

I am in pretty decent shape (nothing amazing, but 5' 7" and 138 pounds which is normal) but find that I can't do much of ANY running without feeling horribly, horribly nauseated within minutes of finishing. I can lift and do pushups, squats, etc., but running is basically out of the question. Sometimes it's so bad I have to stop even though it's rarely more than 10 minutes. Since I'm not unhealthy or overweight, I'm pretty concerned about this. Why does running, in particular, make me feel so awful? Does this happen to anyone else? Should I be trying to push through it?

Yet another marijuana question.

I like smoking pot, and it's often very useful when I'm working, in that it helps me to focus and brainstorm and problem-solve. But I recently cut it out of my daily routine, and for the most part I'm happy to be without it right now...but I do wish to have a little puff once a week. I miss the brainstorms! The problem is, now every time I do smoke, the whole next day I feel way unmotivated and unfocused. Someone suggested more-rigorous exercise the next morning might help, because it burns off the fat that total crap? Help me keep the brainstorms without losing my luster the next day! [more inside]
