What is a fartlek exactly? From Wikiepdia, Fartlek, which means “speed play” in Swedish, is a training method that blends continuous training with interval training. Fartlek runs are a very simple form of a long distance run. Fartlek training “is simply defined as periods of fast running intermixed with periods of slower running.

Quick tip:

Before starting , make sure that you warm up at least 10 to 15 minutes before, to ensure that your muscles are loose enough to handle this challenge. Also, cool down 10 to 15 minutes after the workout. The fartlek can be a difficult workout, so if you don’t warm up and cool down, you could have some very sore muscles the next day.
