Social Distancing: 1-Minute Fartlek Run
Fartlek, yes, we said it. It’s a funny word in the English language and it’s supposed to be fun. This Swedish term means “speed play” and is a form of interval or speed training.

By adding this to your workout once a week, you can start to focus on improving that burst of energy necessary for getting closer to the podium.

Of course, having the feedback of time and distance provides a little more gratification for some.

Track Workouts for people who hate track workouts
I grew up a swimmer and hated to run. As I got older, I discovered that running was a cheap, easy way to stay in shape. That still didn’t make me love it.
About 10 years ago, a friend of mine who ran marathons was getting burnt out. She asked me if I would run with her at the track at our kids’ school as we lived far from each other. We invited some other runners and now, ten years later, we are still doing weekly track workouts, come rain or shine. See my sample workouts...
