I understand the importance of sprinting but, looking at the bigger picture, I think I have to do certain things in the weight room before I’m capable of doing certain things on the track. Training is all about the big picture, and shoring up weaknesses. When I get back to doing more track work my body will have the tools it needs to start running faster.
This is obviously something that we’re not going to agree about, but I appreciate your advice. If nothing else we will see how effective my training is or isn’t.
