    Who here does 'em?

    And what's your routine like?

    If I want to actually improve my sprints what would be a good program?
    I've read the sprint on the straightaways and walk the curves before but frankly for me at least that's not enough rest if I'm going to be giving the sprint part my all....

    any suggestions? What about shoes?

    SpeedStrengthTips.pdf on otfn is a good source of info for this. From some other stuff I've read, sprint racers increase leg muscle strength for explosiveness compared to marathon runners who continuously train for weightloss and endurance.
