Instead of my typical “Tuesday Intervals”, I decided to mix it up and do a Fartlek run on the indoor track at the gym.
Here’s the workout:
10 minute warm-up run (8:30/mile pace)
10 minutes of drills (butt-kickers, shuffles and grape-vines)
40 minutes of fartlek running – picking up the speed for one lap, every third lap
10 minute cool-down – jogging a few laps, walking a few laps, then stretching
I didn’t time my miles during the fartlek running, but based on some of my lap times, I was running around 7:45 – 8:00 miles.
It was a good workout, went by faster than I thought it would. Total workout was 1 hour and 10 minutes, and I covered around 6.5 to 7 miles.
