But what’s a fartlek? Aside from being a funny word to say, fartlek is a running term (from the Swedish word for ‘speed play’) that refers to alternating intense activity with slower-paced running. Unlike traditional interval training, which usually has a pre-determined schedule, fartlek training is unstructured. It’s free-flowing, with an emphasis on getting to know your own capabilities, pushing your limits and increasing mind-body awareness.
