    Yeah, full-out sprinting a 400m is terrible. It's right at that range where you want to push yourself harder, but just a little too far for you to make it going at that top rate. When I ran it it was very much so how you said: strong 200 start, easy on the last curve, and then balls out to the end.

    I know this is antithetical to your realm, T, but I'm looking to kick up my shallow sprints (100m max). Was thinking of doing some mix of HIIT 200/400m's.. thoughts?

    Funny you mentioned this - one of my b-school friends was a sprinter through high school and college, and he was crazy fast. I asked him for guidance as far as building speed and he was no help at all. He was just born with it.

    I can see doing the 200/400's to build your speed over distance, but for raw speed I'd rec you work in hills/stairs and single-leg box jumps once a week (separate workouts).

    Two interesting workouts re: speed over distance - 1) Dellinger's 30/45 alternating 200m (adjusted for your own pace, which may be 45/60, or so), and b) 300/100 which keeps you at pace for the bulk of your time. the 300/100 became a go-to, once I adjusted mentally to the suffering.

    I will try these, thanks. I was always a natural distance runner... even though I never broke that damned 5 minute mile mark :devil:

    Your sister sounds lovely. However she should have no shortage of suitors in that market.

    Fully moved into my office today.

    Its not as crappy as I had feared although the layout is still not my ideal. I can see out a window across the hall although its a sliver of a view of a few buildingtops rather than the lakeview I used to have. Its not as dreary as expected in here...I think the previous resident just kept the office intentionally dark and foreboding.

    My chair is too short though (or really, my desk is too high).

    But its all mine and I can take calls on the speakerphone!
