To be a better runner: reduce overall running time but increase sprints

Sciencedaily reports on an Oct. 1, 2009 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology that showed significant improvements in runners when reducing training times by 25% but increasing 30s sprints.  The study was done on experienced runners and 6 of 12 runners achieved new personal bests.
This is very helpful advice for runners.  Runners are at high risk of fatigue and injury by over training.  The data in this study should help them design better training schemes.
