Right, well, basically for the last 2 weeks I've been doing 3-5 milers to get myself back into the swing of things regarding the running. Having improved my time on each of my runs I now think it's time I start mixing up my runs a bit more. Add a bit of variety into them. I've read a lot of good things about Fartlek style of running and was even highly recommended by a poster on the PRMC diaries page who'd just passed his. No disrespect intended to the person but I forget his name, *text deleted*.

Anyway, to those who already and regularly Fartlek I were just wondering if you could share some of your ideas and techniques which I could transfer into my own training?

Thank you in advance! (=

Tom.

Ive started running just recently doing fartlek running for the last week doing around 3milers.

What i do is do 1 hole lap which is around 1 mile. Stop at the same place ive started and rest for around 5 minutes or so. The go again and the same again.

I have really noticed A LOT! My recovery rate go sky high and yesterday when running i stop for like 1minutes then was off again so i happy im seeing good results. Maybe should run round twice then rest and do more laps :)

But yeah you will see great results :iagree:

Cheers lads (=

I were actually thinking about some hill sprints so will give them a go when I discover a "suitable enough" hill, *text deleted*.
