    Interval apps

    What app/s are you using to help with timing sprint intervals - need some app recommendations for a Blackberry.

    I don't time mine. I just run 75-100 yds (depending on which field I go to) as fast I can. I then walk back and do it again. Repeat 10 times. Takes about 10 - 12 minutes I think.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    If you are sprinting, I'd use a gym boss. Don't want to damage your phone running. I use the HIIT app from the Android Market when I'm doing interval stuff in the garage.

    Depending on where you run, you can use landmarks for your intervals. On the street, I prefer lamp posts. Sprinting between one pair and jogging between the next.

    I also ponied up for a gym boss. For about $20, it's totally worth it, especially since I don't want my phone anywhere near me when I'm working out.
