runners knee not fully healed. I don't know how to ask my doc for help.

during training for my last marathon I've been having trouble with my left knee giving out and being extremely painful in the end, so about five weeks I got an MRI done. the recommendation my doc gave me was to not run at all for four weeks. it has now been five weeks and while I am pain free I am hesitant to pick up my training again because I don't feel it's working properly again. I am not sure how to communicate what my problem is to my doc and what to ask for. [more inside]

Or do I just need to knead my knee?

I just got into road cycling this year. I bought a bike in February, and have been ramping up in miles and pace since then. I just did a metric century (actually ~67 miles) a few weeks ago, my longest ride yet, and it killed my left knee. With this in mind, how do I keep up my progress in the off-season and return harder better faster stronger? What else can I do to move up a division for next year? (Also-- your thoughts on trainer versus stationary exercise bike: give me them.) [more inside]

How to pick up my marathon training after 2 weeks of not running?

I'm training for a marathon that is taking place in just over 5 weeks. I haven't been able to run for 2 weeks due to illness and injuries. I took a week off to nurse some hip bursitis and then I came down with a flu like bug. The longest training run I've done so far has been 14 miles, and that was two weeks ago. This weekend, I am supposed to do 18 miles. To you runners out there - what do you think the best way is for me to get back on track and finish the race successfully over the next 5 weeks? My pace is around 11 minutes/mile.

Baseball stats on last major league hit?

Last Saturday, baseball player Kendry Morales hit a grand slam to win the game and promptly broke his leg at home plate. It got me thinking, perhaps morbidly -- what if he can't come back, and that was his last major league at bat? So my question is, is there info somewhere on baseball players' last at bats? Has anybody else hit a grand slam and then never appeared again? Difficult to google.
