    If your goal is strickly to burn fat, do the cardio first thing in the morning before eating or, alternatively, after your weight workout. Do whatever cardio fits into your goals.

    Yes to the 12, 10, 8, 5 as long as your joints and connective tissues do not bother you in which case 15's are advisable.
