Spring is a great time to pick up speedwork. Here's how to work it in:

But it isn't just racers who reap rewards. Recreational runners—especially those going for fitness or weight loss—can also benefit from running fast. Running burns 50 percent more calories per mile than walking, according to a 2004 Syracuse University study. Increase the intensity and you burn even more, says Dugas. When you double your pace, you double the amount of calories burned per minute. Plus, speedwork ramps up your metabolism long after exercise—researchers at Appalachian State University's Human Performance Laboratory found that participants who cycled vigorously for 45 minutes boosted their metabolism for up to 14 hours, torching 37 percent more calories in that time period above what they typically burn at rest. "If you're consistently exercising like that," says Dugas, "it adds up."
