Well? Just curious about other people's road work whether it be sprints, hills, jogs, whatever. How do you do it and what have been the results?

When I used to run, I would mix it up between distance, sprints, hills, stairs, etc....

For instance, my *standard* run was about 2 miles. I would run at a 7-min mile pace, approximately.

I would occassionally bump that up to a 5 mile run (maybe once every other week), and that would be about an 8-min mile pace.

I would try to run on hills or stairs about once a week. Didn't keep time/distance on these.

I would also try to run sprints once a week. I would try to find a stretch of path where I could sprint between 30 - 50 meters. I would sprint in one direction, then do a slow jog back, then turn and sprint again (never stopping). When I would first start my training regimen, I would usually aim for about 10 sprints. As I progressed closer and closer to fight time, I would be running about 25 sprints.

Results? I didn't gas in fights.

 funny you mention that, I brought my gym bag to work and I'm going to run after work.  I run for 60-90 minutes at a time, for my training I don't care about pace, I'm trying to keep my heartrate in a certain zone to maximize aerobic CAPACITY - how much blood can a single heart beat pump.  in different sessions I'll work OUTPUT - how much pressure can the one heart beat  push.

As long as the dog is chasing me. When he gives up so do I.

Wish I could do it. My feet are really bad. I tried to get some good running sneakers and they did not fit well. I am jealous of people that can train that way.

I did 5-7 500 meter sprints and then 10 stair sprints. I did it 3 times a week before training.

It made a big difference on my pace and endurance in sparring and the fight.

 How often do you do your different runs?

 If I was training 3-4 times a week as a student I'd only need to do 2 additional cardio sessions a week and one strength training day for every day of class less, I'd add one  ex. 2 training session + 3 cardio sessions & 1 lifting session etc.  Since I'm spending most of my time coaching these days I'd be doing 3 cardio sessions and trying to train twice a week.

Of course this is just general conditioning, not fight training or power endurance (anaerobic)

Actually lately I've got a crazy new job with long hours and I haven't been doing crap! I got to get my tubby ass back in shape for summer!

I fought on Saturday night and tried this ( the sprint drills)but I have a history of gassing so I did 3 days a week of sprints and I had energy still at the end of the fight. I'm happy this came up when I needed it!!!

I would also try to run sprints once a week. I would try to find a stretch of path where I could sprint between 30 - 50 meters.

^^WTF?!?! I meant to quote Khun and respond with

"I fought on Saturday night and tried this ( the sprint drills)but I have a history of gassing so I did 3 days a week of sprints and I had energy still at the end of the fight. I'm happy this came up when I needed it!!!"

I have no idea how that ended up half way through the original post?! Anyway. Thanks for posting that KK, it worked for me!!
