I liked the sound of your sprint plan on the first page of this forum.
Run a minute walk a minute(for 45 min every 2 days for a week)
run 2 minutes walk a minute(for 45 min every 2 days for a week).......
Is there a standard you train to before you step up to the next level, or just bump it up every week?

no standard for say, if you can sustain it, it helps you gain alot cardio whise, but when you feel comfy... upgrade to your capacity, I did not use it for sprints until my knee(ACL) was much more stronger then after the surgery, felt like crap cause my left leg lost 2 inches of muscle mass in circonference!!! Wanted to train properly before really opening up the machine!

You gotta mix it up, a comfortable pace with some good sprinting every now n then.
If you look at marathon runners they're wirey n skinny because their bodies naturally shed not only the fat but also the muscle, becuase it's excess weight limiting them. If you look at sprinters, they're built becuase their bodies naturally hold onto that muscle because they train to need it with their sprints.
