    Personally I'm a fan of the Tabata workouts. Which is 20 sec of sprinting and 10 sec of walking or light jogging. Start out doing just a few of these and increase by 1 cycle every week. So you would do 4 your first week, 5 the second, and so on. That's my favorite way to do sprints

    I read about this, and thats what I am leaning towards. Doing this uphill.

    Thank you for relaying that. After seeing this tip I went out to a local park with a bit of a hill. You're right... quick, intense, and it's natural to actually RUN all out when going up a hill. I made a little circuit...All-out sprint up the hill, then walk back down via a slightly longer route with a gentler incline. About a minute a loop, at a guess. After four I was totally winded, but that's a start. Definitely incorporated into my routine going forward.
