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: Joe Friel’s Marathon Test Set

Joe Friel uses this session every 4-6 weeks for his athletes to test their marathon fitness. Outside of testing it provides a really great training stimulus to develop your speed. 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.
