FML Workout Fartlek
(page 1 of 4)
Make no mistake about it, this training regiment is no laughing matter.
There’s no way around it: Fartlek’s name isn’t doing it any favors.

By running fast for short periods of time and then slowing down for easy-effort recovery running, you can “play with speed” to challenge your endurance and mental strength.
Whether you’re in a group—great for mixing up pace and time and pushing your running mates—or training as a tandem (like Chris and Amy McClung, CEO of Rogue Running and Dermatologist, respectively), this free-flowing workout will liberate you from repetitive running routines and ensure you never run out of gas.
For each of these I recommend a warm-up of 1–2 miles athttps://evans-dermatology.com/staff/amy-mcclung-md/ easy efforts before beginning the fartlek.
