Illiterate?

You've clearly mistaken running for sprinting.

so..
you're trying to say that you can sprint at full speed for prolonged sets of times?

No; but that is entirely irrelevant to what I have said.

no it isn't.
you've said that running isn't worth doing,
which means you are talking about sprinting
in which case,
you're saying you only do sprinting

What does that have to do with anything I have said in this thread?

both running and sprinting are a big part of parkour.
you can't sprint for long periods so you need to be able to have good endurance running skills.

I would assume that if (no) one can sprint for long periods (at max speed) then that would make the concept of running away from someone at long periods pretty irrelevant, huh? I've never heard of anyone being chased down by a marathoner. Don't bother replying to this because I think these discussions are gay as hell (like Parkour) and I won't be bothered to give it any attention.

Default Re: sprint training.

to continue with this off topic, would you ever jog away from a pursuer? so called "endurance running" isn't terribly applicable to the idea of escape in parkour, and sprints used in interval training have been shown to increase both sprint speed, endurance, and longer distance endurance. (Long distance endurance isn't increased as much as sprint endurance though)

running can mean many different things...so saying that running itself is a big part of parkour is a little vague. The argument can be made that jogging endurance would be needed should you be pursued by someone, say, across a small desert or something where you aren't within sight of each other but you know you need to keep going or else they'll catch you, but that's not quite as common a scenario.

wow,that really dont answer my question..when i run i move at a fairly brisk pace, i like to sprint every so often,sometimes rather frequently, when i'm tired i jog,sometimes pretty slow.this is usualy without much pk(to and from training spots around the city). im pretty sure thats what all this arguing and non-sense was about, so could someone please tell me if i should take breaks from running, and if not, tell me about a place i can find out(thats free :lol: )

It really doesn't matter what you do since you (and the op) aren't doing anything with any degree of organization or routine.
