Run 400, jog 100
Run 400, done

Oh, all under 60 seconds.

We did that once, every other week, mid season.

Still like hill sprints or stairs, not worried about rest periods.
Tabatas won't really help your speed much as it will help vo2 max. people who use tabatas to increase their running speed are doing themselves a disservice.

I love hills and steps, nothing sucks more in terms of running.
