    Default Ahh... You might want to ease into this;

    I'm definitely no sprint coach, but survey says that going from no sprinting to 'I-feel-like-puking effort' might not be the greatest idea in the world, depending on how much special physical preparedness you have with respect to this.

    For instance, if you have excellent anaerobic conditioning from KB work or circuits but lack strength in the muscles and hardware specific to sprinting, well...

    Whether a distance running background might not give you good GPP for short sprints, I don't know, but the grooves can be very different. Lots of info on this at Charliefrancis.com/community. If you dig through their archives, you can find a thread on hill sprints for GPP that has lots of info on how to ease into sprint training.

    Instead of 'sprinting', think between 'faster than race pace' and 'your final kick's speed'. If you want to get really technical, you can do your outdoor workouts with a GPS speed & distance monitor to track your speed during the sprints. I've used this to develop a great feel for all my running workouts with Tabata-style routines. I'm a big fan-favorite of Tabata stuff.

    Default Good points

    I'll definitely ease into it. It's been a while since I've done any Tabata-style stuff - excrutiating, especially for the uninitiated.
