sprints suck

Friday, April 29, 2005

Oh yeah they do. My workout last night was supposed to be a 10 minute warm-up, followed by 6 x 1 sprints...sprint 1 minute, walk one minute alternately, followed by a 10 minute cool down. I made the first 1 minute sprint, but not the next one. So, instead I did 10 30-second sprints, with a one minute walk in between each. At the end, my legs felt like lead, and I came very close to that ever-elusive "I ran so hard I puked". What's so important about that you ask? I mean, who would want to actually make themselves sick? I'm not quite sure really. But, these 'serious runner' people seem to push themselves to the limits and that's the result. I don't know how 'serious' I'll end up being. At the moment I'm 'committed'. So, I will continue to torture myself in search of improvement.

  • I haven’t puked yet – guess I’ve got the potential for improvement too. LOL!! Cool that you’re diggin’ it now. Supposedly what doesn’t kill you makes you run faster or PUKE -:)

    Have a good running weekend!

  • Hey Girl! I've ran 13 marathons. Not once have I ever done "sprint intervals" in training. Perhaps you should look into Jeff Calloways training program. Interval work is usually only done to increase speed after you have a very good base. So perhaps your coach has another reason for you to be doing these. Be very careful, you can hurt yourself.

    Just lookin' out for ya, Beaver
