Wednesday’s Workouts – Fartlek


Today we are introducing Wednesday’s Workouts and what better workout than to start off with something called a Fartlek.

Here is a tough run workout called a Fartlek, which means “speed play” in Swedish

Warmup 1 mile
3 x (1 minute hard by 3 minutes easy + 1 minute hard by 3 minutes easy + 1 minute hard by 4 minutes easy) sets.
Cool Down 1 mile

The 1 minute hard sessions should be done at 80% of your max effort. They are not sprints, but they are really fast bursts. When doing them try to focus on your form and focus on your breathing.

Remember: Focus on your form, focus on your breathing

Give it a go and see how you do. You will really look forward to that 4 minute rest at the end of the set.
