Speed play, FARTLEK

Fartlek is the Swedish for “speed play,” 

It is unstructured and varies between medium to strong efforts with easy efforts throughout.

After a warmup, you play with pace by moving at faster efforts for brief periods followed by easy-effort running to recover.

The goal is to keep it free-flowing, so you’re untethered to the stopwatch or a plan, and to run at more challenging efforts but not a particular pace. 

Keep it short and sweet, 30-40min, with few fast sprints sprinkled in. 

 

Stretch & Cool Down:
Give yourself 3 min recovery before you start the stretching.

  • Forward Bend (demo)
  • Couch Stretch (demo) – 30s per side
  • Jefferson Curl (use heavy object, but not too heavy) (demo)
