    I never really minded them because I was always in shape during basketball season.. but now that I'm no longer on any teams I would probably hate it.

    Depends on why you have to run them. As a means of getting into shape, yes I hate them, as a punishement I like them.

    Off course they are never fun to do... that's their point, but you can't argue with how effective they are.

    I actually liked them. Especially when you get timed and you give it your all so you finish under the time limit.

    Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

    These are two great quotes.

    I had a coach that didn't give a shit and ran us like crazy.

    One time I declined to do the running drills cause they were excessive and he benched me.

    I gave him the 100% silent treatment. The team got blown out while I was on the bench and he put me in the next game and stopped overrunning us.

    Felt good, man. I'm all for tough love and hard work, but it was stupid. He wasn't even doing basketball drills in some practices.

    What kind of time limits were you guys looking at when you ran suicides? At what point do you think suicides cease being productive?

    As a coach, I've been toying with my running philosophy. I've often found if I make a habit of pushing for a long string of what I expect to be sprinting drills, players will pace themselves, thus nullifying the effects I desire. I tend to believe the true value of something like a suicide is to enable a player to build their sprinting speed over a semi-extended period of time.

    Another running drill I loved and mostly hated at the same time in high school was something we called a Vegas. I'm sure everyone else here has done a variation, only under a different name. We were required to run the width of the court 15 times in one minute (running to one sideline was 1, to the other was 2, so on...). It was doable enough for most of us that we probably could have extended the number to 16, but it was still quite taxing.

    Here if you don't do that drill you got bench by the coach.
