2020 RunBlogRun Spring Track & Field Training program, Week One, Day 4, it is Thursday...

Gosta "Gustaf" Holmer was a fine multi event athlete in Sweden, competing in 1912 and 1920 Olympics. He was the bronze medalist in the 1912 decathlon and 4th in the 1920 decathlon. Holmer was also a fine coach, and worked with the Swedish cross country team, developing some unique training programs based on fartlek, or speed training. Fartlek can be as easy as one needs and as difficult as one needs. It is about effort, and it builds speed and endurance. Today, we suggest you go out in 26 minutes, and then push it a bit, and come back in 24 minutes, pushing yourself at what you can do now.
