    I used to do this all the time for about 8 steps in my parents house. Once, though, I went forward a bit too far and my head hit the drywall ceiling, causing my back to fall onto the wooden steps and me to slide downward to the bottom. I'm glad the edges of the steps were beveled and not sharp-cornered.

    I have a tendency to enter into tachycardia if I am under stress and if I move a certain way while beginning a breath. When it happens, the beating is faster than I can count by my wrist pulse, maybe 300 or more per minute. I must stop it immediately by slowly letting out a controlled breath a certain way. In worst cases, I had to lie on my back and then let out the breath slowly the certain way. It's been several years since it has acted up very much and by being careful, it has lessened as time has passed. It was the worst when I was a teenager when it once made me faint. When it would happen, if I didn't stop it, chest discomfort would begin and blacking out would be imminent.

    I agree and had always thought so. The doctor I had when I was a teenager prescribed me a diet for low blood sugar after that fainting incident.

    You need a cardiac stress test, they hook you up to an ECG and make you run on a treadmill till you pass out

    30 minutes is a bit too much, did you sit right down or did you walk around or jogged it out? Just a FYI in case, you are not supposed to sit right down and rest after a sprint.

    I'm gonna assume that your max is your highest recorded, not your top speed during the race.

    So...slightly less than 12 seconds in 100 max...that's about a 4.9 max in 40 yard dash, I know because back in the day when I started playing rep, that was my speed (I wasn't that fast either, don't worry I ran a dead 12 in 100). Lol, what would you say if I told you there's a 230 pound man (and he's not black) that can run faster then your max...TIM TEBOW!

    The best way to run faster really quickly and to maintain it is to:

    1. Just run perfectly, "PERFECT practice makes perfect" - Vince Lombardi (I think...), using perfect form

    2. Work on explosive power in your legs

    3. Work on flexibility, you want to be able to do the splits and stuff like that (almost for me, but not quite), it helps you take longer strides in OFSSA, I raced against guys that are 5'9"-10" (I'm 6'2") that took huge strides that I wouldn't be surprised if they were longer then mine (and no, they didn't have ridiculously long legs either). They completely wrecked me...their flexibility and explosiveness allowed it, not their stature, even though height and long legs does help.

    4.Work on your core and back (be careful when working your back, make sure to work your muscles, not strain your back), they are stabilizers.

    It's not something for me lol

    You see, you are more talented in these things than me, each have their own talents.

    For example I can run faster, but you are better at parkour stuff.
