Got quite a bit of swimming in the last few days. But, man, does sprinting make me tired. My body is definitely not used to it yet. Still, I seem to be making some progress.

    Does sprinting make you tired for the rest of the day? It does me, especially the NB's

    Yes, usually tired. But right now, with my body not used to it, it's like getting hit by a mac truck.

    I started swimming 5 years ago, I am a sprinter and followed your workouts on high intensity.... now 3 yeas later my technique is getting good thanks to masters coaching; but my times are not as dramatic improvements then when I did your workouts!!!!! Is there any chance I could get you to email me or post your workouts from old posts, that you used to provide???
