Running Tip of the Week

Carlsbad Running Lab FartlekWhat is a Fartlek? 

Fartlek, a Swedish term that means "speed play" is a form of interval or speed training that can be effective in improving a runner’s speed and endurance. 

  • Since a runner can make it up as they go, there is no pressure to perform and the runner can work it as hard or as easy as they like.

  • The suggested pace given on the program is the runner's own average pace. 

  • The runner should speed up and slow down according to how they feel, not by any set pace.

Many runners use fartlek running as speed "work" rather than speed "play.”  Either way, varying your speed at irregular intervals will help build your endurance and improve your running speed. Give it a try!
