I was on a school holiday road-trip with my 9 year old daughter and our ferry was due to arrive at the scheduled start time. With an athlete competing in the event and keen to catch up with other friends at the event, although I wasn’t in a position to have a bit of a run as well. We turned up in time to see some scorching times with three runners coming in under 16 minutes!!! My PB is 16:20 and that was from about 25 years ago!!!!

Friday Fartlek Run: Megan’s Fartlek

Megan say’s “Running at your top end speed & doing short, fast intervals is a great way to increase your oxygen uptake & kick on your fast twitch muscle fibers to increases your overall running performance making you a stronger, faster & more efficient at every running distance! The more efficient you can be, the less energy you use at any given pace! It helps you to better adapt to mental stress & fatigue!” This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events between 5km & 10km.
