 Fartlek facts

  • 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
  • " For some people, this could be a mix of jogging and sprinting, but for beginners it could be walking with jogging sections added in when possible
  • A simple example of what a runner would do during a fartlek run is “sprint all out from one light pole to the next, jog to the corner, give a medium effort for a couple of blocks, jog between four light poles and sprint to a stop sign, and so on, for a set total time or distance
  • " The variable intensity and continuous nature of the exercise places stress on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems
  • It differs from traditional interval training in that it is unstructured; intensity and/or speed varies, as the athlete wishes
  • Fartlek training is generally associated with running, but can include almost any kind of exercise
