second run after graduation , and 2nd 5K.
i wanted to have a bit of a play on this one to give me something to think about so i decided to have a play with Fartleks (well, mini Fartleks) 😁
its a great way of varying pace without the rigid structure of time !
once i had set off running i picked a point in the distance and decided to run to that point at a slightly faster pace but without using time or looking at my watch, this was purley based on how i felt (the best guide imho) sometimes it's too easy to get tied up in numbers and stats!
once i got there then i slowed down again ! simples !
i did this several times throughout the run and then also a few reverse Fartleks , slowing the pace down between two points !
it was good fun and the time and distance just melted away .
for me, it's an interesting and less rigid way of introducing intervals , albeit in a mini way for me today , i really just wanted to explore the concept and to run another 5K.
Mission accomplished, and quicker than last time ! 😬
