This is Week 8, Day 2 of the Winter Training Block.
Today is Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
Our workout today comes from Sweden, it is speed play, or Fartlek in Swedish. Gosta Holmer, 1912/1920 Olympian and Sweden’s National coach formulated Fartlek to use repetitions on Sweden’s trails to build up the confidence of Swedish cross country runners in the 1930s.
Today is a combination workout.
