Last week was definitely a building week for my training. The miles became longer but my effort was easier.
Monday – Fartlek (4 min, 3 min, 2 min, 1 min) – 8.1 miles!
A system of training for distance runners in which the terrain and pace are continually varied to eliminate boredom and enhance psychological aspects of conditioning.
