    I used MFP when I started off Still do now and again to track things, their forum is also pretty useful.
    Check out the youtube channel Athlean X. Guy gives advice about gaining muscle and losing fat

    Cheers.

    OK so I did about 45 minutes total of sprints up the park tonight. A few observations:

    - sprinting on grass is not the best idea, even if it looks flat. A couple of times a slight dip nearly flipped me into a forward somersault.
    - sprinting at 90% on grass is an even worse idea.
    - I didn't feel tired at all in terms of fitness/cardio, so had small breathers in-between sprints. The tiredness is definitely in the leg muscles, now they are very fatigued.
    - I can sprint faster than a chasing dog.

    Obviously at a certain point the combo of grass and fatigue ruined my speed and technique, but it definitely feels like a proper workout.

    I think I need to work on longer intervals between sprints and at what percentage of my top speed I go at. The hamstrings were a little too tight to really kick into it over many sprints.
    Fool enough to almost be it
    Cool enough to not quite see it

    What was your interval? 20 seconds?

    Started off like that, maybe a minute as I went on. Basically my legs ran out of gas.

    If you had to pick between :

    Broken rib (bottom one)
    Herniated disc


    What would you guys pick ?
    The F1 remains as of 2013 one of the fastest production cars ever made; as of July 2013 it is succeeded by very few cars including the Koenigsegg Agera R, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT,and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. However, all of the superior top speed machines use forced induction to reach their top speeds, whereas the McLaren F1 is naturally aspirated.

    Not sure if you're serious.. Broken ribs hurt, but in almost all cases heal (relatively) quickly and without treatment. Herniated discs on the other hand can be a nightmare and can be crippling.
