Fartek Run

Friday Fartlek Run: Special K’s – Alternating K’s

Doing 1km reps is very popular with triathletes and runners to improve speed. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.

Friday Fartlek Run: Special K’s – Race Pace K’s

Doing 1km reps is very popular with triathletes and runners to improve speed. This is a perfect session for runner’s and triathlete’s running 10km races. Doing it ~10 days prior to an important 10km as a great session.

Friday Fartlek Run: George’s Fartlek

Spending time running at VO2 Max intensity will help develop your ability to run longer at this intensity. Despite the very short rest in this session, you will qwikly accumulate ten minutes running at VO2 Max pace. It is perfect for runners and triathletes running events up to 10km in distance.

Friday Fartlek Run: Triathlon Taren’s Short & Hard Treadmill Hill Reps

Although I’m not often a fan of running on a Treadmill, this type of session is an exception. You can use the treadmill to control the gradient and also the pace. This session takes the best bit of treadmill running and gives you great bang for your time working out. It is perfect for both full and half marathon runners and triathletes alike.

Friday Fartlek Run: 30min Time Trial

I utilise this session mainly with Ultra- and Trail runners where I measure their intensity with Heart Rate. Although the purpose of this session is to assess their fitness, it also provides a great training stimulus and can be used for success with all runners including triathletes.
