We’re not asking you to go speed dating or shop around for another run lover, we’re challenging you to a workout of speed play, or in running terms: a “fartlek workout”! Fartlek workouts are a great way to mix up your regular running routine. They involve a variation in intensity and length and are a perfect transition into running, fast running, or race pace training.
Making goals is easy. Truly believing in them and yourself is the challenge. As we enter 2016, a year put on a pedestal and in the limelight for pro runners, the word Olympics looms above our heads on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. When I started my career almost a decade ago I believed becoming an Olympian was the END goal. Defining your career as a runner. To make an Olympic Team still ranks very high on my list of goals but it isn't the end all be all. I have other fish to fry.
