Speed + Endurance Training
Hi everyone!! haven't posted for a while but here I am. I play soccer. Does anyone know if I do speed training, I will also be getting endurance at the same time? I have been working on getting endurance, - I have been running 7 to 10 miles tuesday, wednesday, thursday, saturday ( on friday sunday and monday I have games ) plus 30 minutes running in a mountain 3 days a week ( tiring ) so far I have gotten great results, but speed hasn't changed. I am fast but I want to get faster. I know that endurance training will not give me speed but would speed training give me endurance?
Any exercise/s for speed training besides sprinting?

Get a speed trainer, he will have you do what's needed to get faster, and continue doing your endurance training, you can't get signifigantly good at both, usually it's one or the other, for soccer just try to find a good mix of it.

Hill sprints, 20 meter shuttle, foot speed ladder(you can draw the lines in), and resisted sprints(you need someone to hold your hips as you run, than have them let go and sprint another 5 yards). This is all the stuff I can think of that you can do with out any equipment.
TO ADD: When you do this type of training, don't let your self get tired, only do the drill when you are fully recovered but at 100% intensity.
