Fartlek Training

Fartlek is Swedish for Speedplay and was developed in 1937 by Swedish coach Gösta Holmér. Whilst I recommend you google it and learn more about it and the more advanced methods and styles this challenge (4 weeks of Fartlek training)  is going to stick to a very simple form of Fartlek training. 
It involves interval training on a treadmill, track or road, however a treadmill is preferred as you can monitor your speeds better.

Interval running on the treadmill today, I only got to do 27 minutes in the gym as it snowed on the way home and double decker busses and snow don’t mix well! I did a 3 minute warm up at a speed of 6.0 with an incline if 1.0 and then did 1 minute running (at a speed of 10-10.6) then 1 minute walking at speed 6.0 and so on
Burned 173 calories in 27 minutes!

Started running on the beach/sand this week. 😁😝 Upside: my knee hasn’t been hurting at all. 👍Downside: my calves burn and my Achilles’ tendons are feeling it. 👎Overall, I’ve decided I like this better than going to the crowded, “resolutioner”-filled gym. 👌 #IHazTired #NewportBeach #IntervalRunning #MoonlightIsSoPrettay 🌕 #ButIStillWannaLift (at Newport Beach)
