This session is a great way to develop your speed without having to go to an athletics track.
Each week I will be posting the Friday Fartlek Run Sessions that you can do to enhance your running. Fartlek is a Swedish term that runners often use and it means speed-play. See a previous post about training intensity (levels) to know how hard to work.
6x 2min, 2min RI
- 10min Warm Up Level II;
- 6x 2min Level V, 2min Level I-II RI;
- 10min Cool Down Level I-II;
- 10min Stretching
The warm-up should be done at an intensity that is steady but not overconsuming at Level II for ten minutes. This session can be done either on the road, trail, or track.
Run for two minutes as hard as you can (Level II), then jog for two minutes at Level I-II. Repeat this a total of six times.
The cooldown is at a low intensity, jogging for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Finish with 10 minutes of stretching to assist with the recovery.
