Come on, you know you love sprints. Granted, you might hate it while you're sprinting and you might hate it for about a minute after the sprint, but then you get that runner's high that we're all here for,.
While distance runners don't really sprint in a competition or fun run, including a little sprinting in your training will make you a better distance runner. It will increase your stride power and endurance. Plus, it’s fun.
A little bit of sprinting goes a long way. Just a handful of all-out efforts lasting 8 to 10 seconds a piece, done each week, will make a difference you can feel!
