    Sprinting!

    How many of you have truly incorporated sprinting into your Paleo fitness routines? If so how often, what distances etc. The attached article is great and relates to men and women, not just men as indicated in the title.

    You are all familiar with the term "fat adapted", I believe it is equally important to become "sprint adapted" to maximize your Paleo results.

    Forgot to mention, that I'm 60 and sprint twice a week - Sprint Day one - 1 mile warm up followed by 10 100 meter sprints and a 1 mile cool down. Sprint Day 2 - 1 mile warm up followed by 4 200 meter sprints and a 1 mile cool down.

    Thanks PHaselow! I started embracing a Paleo diet and exercise lifestyle on March 4th of this year at 213 lbs. I currently weigh 165 lbs, so I've lost 48 lbs in 6 months. I have to say I've never felt better.

    Was sprinting regularly, now I'm scared to.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I can't yet. After a bad sprain, I'm just now at the point where I can walk 90 minutes and not have my ankle hurt. But I can't wait to start. Little old lady sprinting in the park - that will be me.

    Sorry to hear about your sprain! When you are fully recovered and are able to start sprinting make sure to warm up with some light jogging and build up to maximum efforts over a couple of weeks. Your initial sprints should only be at about 70% of maximum efforts.

    I was for a while, until it got so damned hot outside that sprinting made me want to puke. Now it's cooling down and I'm looking forward to starting up again. You may have inspired me to get started!

    Great! It made a big difference in my energy levels and body composition, hopefully you will get the same results.

    as long as i don't have an injury, sprinting has always been the surest aspect of my fitness regimen. i usually did one day of actual sprints per week, and sometimes a second metcon day. i haven't done a good sprint workout in about two months though, after i pulled a hamstring, then pulled it again a month later.
    i just moved, though, and there's a track about a mile from my place, so i'm thinking i might do some 400m intervals with some 100m controlled sprints (the hamstring pulls seem to be related to digging in too hard) and see how things go.
