Just a quick one, I planned on sprinting everyday this week just to mix it up. I have previously sprinted 2-3 times per week on top on 3 days of weight lifting. I am also intermittent fasting, is this too much? I have the energy to do it and only really eat from 4 pm-9 pm everyday. I feel great but want to lose the last little bit of lower abdominal fat.
I have been amazed by it as well. Even odder, I am less and less hungry. I started out eating at noon and have quickly migrated to around 4 pm because I am just not hungry. Feeling great though!
When I sprint more than twice a week I seem to get extra hungry and cranky. I normally have to add a bit more carbs to keep me from being totally wiped out energy wise.
"If man made it, don't eat it" - Jack Lallane
People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
That is the way that i thought I would be, for some reason I have more energy by working out more and eating less.
Once I started adding sprints in I felt like I wanted to do them more often too. I'm also back at crossfit at least twice a week with a bit of shovelglove thrown in most mornings before work. My energy is fantastic and I think I'm getting results. I'd say stick with what you're doing if its working for you. If you're getting tired then back off a bit, but when you're doing 'too much' you'll know.

If you can sprint more than two times a week, you are not pushing them hard enough.
