I really need to work on my speed as I’ve said on many occasions so I jumped at the chance at popping along to Regent’s Park track to try my hand at sprinting. We started off with a warm up and a few fun sprinting exercises – a high 5 sprint (great as an ice breaker!) and a wiggly worm – essentially every runs in a line and the person at the back sprints to the front.
We then did 4 timed 100m sprints with 2×100 walks and a 100 sprint in between. Weirdly my second attempt was faster than my first!
Here were my times:
If you are in London, do go along – it’s good fun, the hour flew by, it’s good training if you want to improve your times over 5k and beyond, and importantly it’s completely free!
