One of the founding principles of the Agile Manifesto is
Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Scrum teams use the term sprint to refer to a work cycle (also known as an iteration).
However this doesn't make sense to me. According to Google a sprint is:
run at full speed over a short distance.
In other words it's not sustainable. Why do Scrum teams use the word sprint? It appears to me to conflict one of the basic principles of Agile.
