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 molecules...is that total crap? Help me keep the brainstorms without losing my luster the next day!

Working out while using the internet?

Has anyone here had any success working out while using the internet? I'm thinking about buying a recumbent exercise bike that would allow me to prop up my laptop in front so I can pedal and read at the same time, but I'm wondering how practical this idea really is. Anyone tried it?

How to deal with criticism of your body

So I am about to join a gym. In most ways, I am a rational human being - but this membership comes with fitness evaluation and body composition test and if I have someone tell me that I am a big, fat, pudding of a man I am going to be posting an "ask metafilter" thread about how to hide a body. How do I handle this is a constructive manner? [more inside]

What should I eat to obtain a flat stomach?

This is a tangent on the various posts asking about how getting a six-pack stomach. I'm 5'10' and 155 lbs and once and for all, I want to get rid of my slight beer gut and get a flat stomach (any pack would be a welcome bonus). I know that it's all about dieting/nutrition and exercising. I have the exercising thing down, but I have no clue about nutrition. Without giving me intake percentages or confusing me with omega fructose 3 fatty acid stuff, what should I eat to make my stomach flat? [more inside]
