Majority of athletes need to run. Aside from the fighters, basketball players, volleyball players and even Karatekas and Tae kwon do practitioners run or jog to build up stamina. But I sometimes see some athlete in training who would be doing a sprint at the end of their run. Is that sprint run just a whim or is it really necessary? What is the benefit that one gets in doing a sprint run? I think that’s only for the short distance runners. Am I right on this that athletes in training don’t need to run a sprint?
