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. 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!
