Recovery Time Is Important When Speed Training

Its important to do speed training with 100% effort! So, you need to recover between speed training sets. A good guide to follow would be to rest 1 minute for every 10 yards sprinted. So, if you are doing 60 yard sprints, rest about 6 minutes between sprints. You have to run fast to get faster!

Speed training should be done at the beginning of your workouts when you are fresh. Your body's neuromuscular system is highly fatigue-prone at high intensities. Doing speed training in a fatigued state will compromise what you are trying to accomplish (get faster).

For example, if a coach had players doing speed work at the end of practice, general conditioning would probably be achieved rather than the desired increase in optimum speed development.
