Fun Fartlek (Say that 10 times fast)

I headed out today with the intent on doing a fairly fast fartlek. I tried to relax during the first mile and pulled it off at around 8:30. Then, I accelerated for my first fartlek (shorter than last week’s but just as fast). This set a good tone and I felt like I was exerting myself, but always recovered enough to give another short acceleration a go. I completed five miles in 41:15. I could have hit 41 flat, but for some heavy traffic at my final street crossing.

Actual workout

8 minutes warmup

5 miles at 8:15 pace
