    Such thing as working your legs to hard running?

    I know its bad to weight lift too much during the week since your body cant recover but what about running? Ive been going pretty hard on my running 5 days a week and i was just wondering if im doing to much? And if i am what kind of things shuold i do on the days that i should take a break?

    working solely on speed and acceleration everyday wont let you progress very much. speed training activities drain ur CNS quickly, id have a day off somewhere inbetween those session, or take away one of those sessions.

    Of course you can work your legs too hard running. The workouts you are doing look pretty hard. Only you can tell what your body can handle. You have a lot of the same stuff over and over, try to change it up a little bit to keep your body guessing. For a lot of people that sprint workout would would be too much. For you it might not be enough. But like I said only you can tell how your body fells. If your overtraining your body will tell you. Your workout looks pretty good. Go own how your body feels.

    aight thanks, that was the problem, my body felt good to run 5 days a week. All i would have to do was stretch and stuff cause i would be tighter then usual but once i stretched and maybe did 10 minutes of yoga and dynamic flexing, i was totally fine. Yeah i switch it up often i usually do the same stuff for liek 2 weeks then change most of the stuff aroudn
