A fall and winter classic! 🍁🍂
Fartlek has its origin in Sweden 🇸🇪 during the 1930s and is one of the earliest forms of interval training.
🔺It combines easy running with higher intensity running.
🔺 The “spices” during a fartlek can vary in intensity. In this case the 30s interval could be a submaximal sprint, 1min interval 1500m- 5000m pace and 2min interval 5K-10K pace with 2-3min easy running in between.
❗️ The cool thing is Fartlek can have many forms and you can get creative 🤹🏽. For example run hard for 30-60s each time you reach an incline or every time you make a left turn. Just mix it up in order have a wide array of different paces in your training.
