Ok so I'm a freshman and I didn't run in middle school. I had my last cross country meet today and now I have a two week break until winter track, where I'm going to be sprinting which is what I'm really good at. My question is....what kind of runs should I be doing during that two week period? Like what distances and all that ****...thanks in advance

I'm more of a cross country runner myself, but I'd start weening myself down to shorter distances, in less time. I take it you run a 5k cross country race? Start going down to one mile runs, but no matter what stay active during the entire break. Nothing messes you up more then not running at all.

Have fun

I don't run cross country but I am a sprinter. Before i can really give you any advice though, what sprints? Longer (400's) or shorter (100s and 200s)?

Holy ****! you go to east! I go to south! Do you know anthony curran?

EDIT: so its not spamming, run like a mile or so, but then do some sprints for a warm up.

If your going to be sprinting, you'd be best to work on short distance running...50 yd, 100 yd dashes and stuff like that.

you can play alot of basketball, i know that got me really well conditioned for football. Or if your no good at basketball, just find a full court, run to the other end and do a lay up, run to the other end and do a layup (repeat)

i run 400,200, and 100.

before during conditioning coach makes me run mile and two mile for the first 3 weeks, then do 800 sprints for 2 and then run my actual events the last week before competition. it really helps with keeping my endurace up during the whole course of the race (especially the 400). i assume you're already decently fast if your coach has you running sprints, all you need is more sprint stamina. try running at sprint speeds for half a mile, then distance speed the rest of it, and alternate like so.
