What’s the session?

3 x 30 seconds active recovery

What is Fartlek?
Fartlek is continuous training with periods of fast running intermixed with periods of slower running.
Why Fartlek?
Fartlek training puts a little extra stress on your system. It improves running fitness in four ways: speed, stamina, economy, and endurance. This is achieved by incorporating an active recovery after bouts of speed. (Active recovery is when you continue to run at a slower pace without stopping.) This is crucial to runners (particularly distance runners) seeking to improve their overall stamina and endurance.

Tuesday Training – 25 Jun (5k Time Trial)

Please note there will be NO training session meeting at the leisure centre this week. The session will instead be at the Pingles running track, Nuneaton, which will be a 5000m time trial. Newcomers are welcome!

Nuneaton 5k track time trial. Open to all.
The 5k time trial counts towards your standard awards and you may not get a better chance of a PB at this distance.
We will meet at the Pingles track for 7pm which will give us time for a reasonable warm up. It will cost £1 to enter the stadium.
Depending on numbers we are likely to split in to two races with the slower runners going off first at 7:30pm and then the faster runners at 8:00pm.
I will bring numbers along to the event so that the counters can count the laps. You will need to bring along safety pins.
I look forward to seeing you all Tuesday.
