hmmm.... that is certainly interesting. I read that it is a Swedish word... you are kidding about the beans right?

btw... did about 3 miles today getting back into it after a busy week of interviews.

Yeah, just joking. Fartleks are short quick runs similar to intervals. These were 1 min sub-5K pace and 1 min recovery jog x 12 reps w/ a warm-up and cool down run included.

8 miles this morning, my longest run in probably 6 months. Felt good, I have about 9 more weeks to go before my half marathon.

10 yesterday, 7 this morning. My son rode his bike alongside today, and that was nice.

Ran 6.71KM this morning at a 7min per km pace after being off for almost four weeks courtesy a nasty Summer cold.

13 very slow miles yesterday morning. I had planned at running around an 8 minute pace (or even a few seconds faster) but had to slow it down to almost 9 minutes because my legs were just not feeling it. Today is a much appreciated day of rest. I even skipped out on spin class this morning.

Ran 6.71km this morning at a 6 min 41 second per KM pace. Finally I'm getting my groove back.

4. Trying to take it easy on pace, hoping this strain can "actively" recover.
