Fartlek is not just a funny word. It’s Swedish for Speed Play. It’s running sprints like you did as a kid to catch up with your friends or to prove you can make it to the field first. It’s like a dog chasing a squirrel then stopping to smell the fire hydrant. It’s unstructured paces and distances based on feel. Learn to run faster by having fun with speed.
