What is Fartlek?
Fartlek is continuous training with periods of fast running intermixed with periods of slower running.
Why Fartlek?
Fartlek training puts a little extra stress on your system. It improves running fitness in four ways: speed, stamina, economy, and endurance. This is achieved by incorporating an active recovery after bouts of speed. (Active recovery is when you continue to run at a slower pace without stopping.) This is crucial to runners (particularly distance runners) seeking to improve their overall stamina and endurance.
