Out of shape after winter and tired of it!

I'll keep that in mind, it'll keep my leg muscles in good working condition during winter.

My method of increasing speed over time, is keeping irregular short burst sprints. I don't know if it's healthy for the muscles in the long run.
For example, 10 second sprint followed by a minute or two of regular rhythm running speed. Over time, I increase the sprint time. At my peak level, 25 second is my average at keeping a sprint pace.

I've tried a full out 45 second sprint at peak level, but that just leads me to wheezing, and afterwards, barely able to keep a jog pace.
