Sprint Like You Mean It

I have been watching the Olympics with my girls, and aside from the gymnastics (I believe the love of the leotard is buried deep in the X chromosome) they love watching women run. And run fast. All the 100m heats are the perfect length for my 3-year-old's attention span.

These fast women amaze and inspire me with their speed and determination. The exuberance of Jamaican gold medal winner Shelly-Ann Fraser was infectious. After watching her dance around with the Jamaican flag, I just had to do a running workout with sprints. If you caught the rapidly spreading sprinting fever, here are some workouts for you to try.

I love sprinting! Fit, I did your killers in the park workout on Tuesday and it was so much fun and such hard work. My husband thought I was crazy, but I felt great knowing I can still do suicides! It was a perfect interval workout, thanks for sharing it with us.

I've never been overly interested in watching track and field events - but i have to admit that I've tuned in for a few this year and they are kind of cool to watch. i don't understand how sprinters are able to achieve top speed so quickly -but i guess that's why they are in the Olympics instead of me.
