For our runners out there let’s try a “Fartlek” today.
Fartlek is a Swedish term that means speed play – a form of interval training in running.
It makes the workouts go by faster and Fartlek is fun to say 🙂
So warm up for 10 – 20 minutes and then you will be alternating fast segments with slow jogs.
Now there are many ways to do this and you can do time but i prefer running to a landmark. For example run fast for a block, or from fire hydrant to fire hydrant, light post to light post, the time you are running fast should be from 45 to 90 seconds.
After each faster section then jog easy for 5 – 7 minutes and do another fast burst. Do about8 of those on your first workout. Make sure to finish up with 10 minutes of recovery running.
For the cyclists out there – you can do the same thing on your bike but be very careful and make sure you are paying attention to the rules of the road.
The Fartlek workout will remind our swimmers of workouts where we do “Bursts” of fast strokes followed by easy swimming.
