Fartlek Training Sessions

Fartlek Training Sessions ( From Sports Fitness Advisor)These are shorter sessions made up of jogging, walking and some fast running. They offer a nice change of pace to continuous running and they can help improve aspects of endurance such as VO2max and anaerobic threshold. 

Here is the format for our Fartlek sessions...
  • Warm Up with 5-10 minutes of light jogging
  • Run for 4 minutes, jog slowly for 1 minute. This one cycle
  • Repeat for the prescribed amount of time (see chart at bottom). A 20 minute session would consist of 4 cycles
  • On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 is a very fast run, 1 is a leisurely stroll) aim for a level 7 to 8 on the runs
  • Cool down for 5-10 minutes of light jogging
