    Hope your toe heals quickly. I am mightily impressed that you were doing sprints at 266 lbs, get well soon and make sure you very gradually incorporate sprinting back into your routine!

    I do more of a traditional 'Tabata' training: short sprints followed by short rest. If I am feeling ornery, I will jog in between the sprints. If I'm not, I'll completely stop for my rest.

    It basically goes like this when I am on the treadmill: 1 minute sprint, 2 minute jog for 60 minutes. I can only do this twice/week since I have a chronic injury related to a broken femur neck 25 years ago.

    I don't sprint outside as much as I'd like to do. The last time I did was on a fire access road in the middle of Oregon! It was beautiful.

    I can relate to your fire access road experience. Some of the best times to sprint are when the spirit strikes and you just feel like sprinting for the sure joy of it.

    I did sprinting for several months. I quit because it seemed to injure me more than anything and it didn't help me lose any weight. I'm trying slower exercise now to see if that will help me build my aerobic base up. It's pretty piss-poor right now.

    I sprint 2-3 times per month, and it's not enough. I feel like I could benefit from adding 1 or 2 sessions, but can never really find the time. I need to fix that, soon.

    I suggest doing MovNat, its very primal and will lay a good functional foundation that you can build on -

    here's a link - MovNat is for everyone! - YouTube

    Here's some great info on the benefits of sprinting. Especially how it relates to natural increases in HGH and it's effect on fat loss.

    I've recently put sprints back into my weekly program, though I'm struggling a bit with when to do them. Sprints kill my squats the following day, and vice versa. Right now I'm enjoying old fashioned 100 yard dashes, trying to get 6 good ones in a session then do some chins and pushups.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Good article.
    I do sprints 3 times a week. 30 second sprint, 90 seconds at a slower recovery pace, repeated 8 times.
    Then I don't eat anything for at least an hour afterwards. Works well.
    Funny thing is, when I finally do eat an hour or so after sprints, I don't seem as hungry, for some reason, and I fill up quicker.
    Then again, I stay away from fruits at that point, and eat tubers and veggies as my carbs. (along with a protein source). Maybe that's the reason that I don't want to eat everything in the house after sprinting.
