    ^ I thought you were joking until I looked it up... clearly I don't speak Swedish. :embar: Going out to run now... should be at least few miles for sure.

    It's a workout that originated in Mexico / Central America. Eat lots of beans prior to running, then go out slow and speed up over the miles. The fartlek portion of the workout then takes over and moves you in ways that help you endure discomfort on long runs and prepare for ultras.

    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.

    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.

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

    My New Year's resolution this year was to run 1,000 miles. I put in a 9.5 mile run this morning which put me at 1,001.2 miles for the year. I reached my goal with more than 4 months to spare. :slayer:
