Favorite Track Workout

One of my favorite workouts in the track is a Fartlek Workout aka ‘Speed Play’. Fartlek running involves varying your pace throughout your run, alternating between fast segments and slow jogs.

Example:

  • Warm up:
    • 10 min easy run
    • Dynamic Warm up exercises
  • Strides ( Please followi the strides exercises.)
    • 4 x 100 yards build with 1 jog recovery
  • 3 min easy run
  • Main Set:
    • 15 x 1 min with (1:00 Jog Recovery)
    • Run all main set intervals at as fast a pace as you can maintain with good form. Attempt to run final effort as quickly or faster than the first.
  • Cool Down:
    • 800 meter easy run
  • Tip: to run even pace requires an increase in effort. You will learn how to pace your effort inthis workout.
