No, that is not code for something naughty...but rather something way FUN. Swedish for "speed play," Farklet is just a fun form of interval training. I'm finding that though distances are getting easier for me, my time isn't really improving. Basically, I think I need to push myself - and today was definitely my hardest "by myself" workout. I ran to the nearby school, put my water bottle down, and did graduated sprint there/walk back sessions to and from the water bottle for 35 minutes. It was hot and challenging - but I felt like I'd truly Labored on Labor Day! :)
I spent this weekend starting to plan my path to the bigger races - and my training is definitely going to be more thought out. I know I've done half-hearted strength training, and have yet to implement my yoga/recovery plan. Now, it's all PLANNED, and I need to IMPLEMENT.
And, Mike and Lea will be happy to know - I'm taking my RECOVERY shakes seriously, too. Putting on my big girl panties (figuratively - no longer literally!), and drinking them whether I want to, or not!
Closing in on a big number in the weight department. Stay tuned.
Six days until I rock it at WARRIOR DASH!
Until then, Living My Fit Dreams!
