Howl, I'm a distance guy who quit running for many years then made a bit of a comeback & ran 3 half marathons after the age of 47. Obviously you are not that old.........so you can speed up your comeback with ease. I started with walking/running making it comfortable. I didn't push very hard until I was able to build up some endurance and stamina. For a sprinter I'm not quite sure of the approach to take. I would still think you need some sort of distance to get all those muscles, tendons, and ligaments ready for the workload of sprinting. My best advice is to take it slow at first, avoid injury/setbacks, then build on that base with your sprint workouts.
