What The F is a Fartlek?!

What kind of workout involves duct tape, a whistle, and a relentless pursuit of perfection? This week's Wednesday workout does, that's what!

What is a fartlek you ask? According to Wikipedia, Fartlek, which means "speed play" in Swedish, is a training method that blends continuous training with interval training.[1] The variable intensity and continuous nature of the exercise places stress on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems. It differs from traditional interval training in that it is unstructured; intensity and/or speed varies, as the athlete wishes... however, in our case intensity and/or speed varies, as the Jeff wishes ;) Essentially you show up, and Jeff will tell you what to do! This will be fun, challenging and will be a great training tool that you may choose to start incorporating once a week on your own! I'll tell you where the duct tape and whistle comes in when you get to the track!
