Wednesday Word: Fartlek

Fartlek - noun

Fartlek, meaning "speed play" in Swedish, is a training technique for runners. Periods of strenuous and intense activity alternate with periods of less intense activity. Casual runners may know this as "run a minute, walk a minute" while building stamina. Fartlek training is generally less structured than traditional interval training methods.
