Hi guys quick question about Fartlek. At the moment i can run around 2.5 miles at around a medium pace i'd say and this week i'm going to start running slower so i can put more distance in but at the same time i want to do something which can help my speed thus i've decided to try some Fartlek. I run 1.5 miles in about 13 minutes when i'm comfortable although i did go absolutely balls out once and got 9:58 :bigsmile: So bearing in mind my not so great current running ability should i give the Fartlek a go or not yet? i found a program online which went something like: Light jog 10 mins and then hard runs for 2,3,4,4,3,and finally 2 mins with 2:30 mins light jog after each period of hard run. I was actually going to change the hard runs to 1,2,3,3,2,1 because i'm not so good at running yet. Cheers.
