I know this is contradictory to what Steven said but I would NOT recommend sprinting yet until you lose more weight. You are very correct when worry about your knees/lower body.
It has been varied. If I am hired the academy will start in Sept. so I have some time but I want to take advantage of it. I have been doing 8 roughly 100 meter sprints 3-4 times a week for the past month. Sprint from starting point 1oo meters and walk back to starting point and sprint again. I've been walking 1 to 1 1/2 miles on my off nites the past couple of months. Since Jan. I have been trying to keep in mind that I don't want to hurt myself or overdo the cardio.
