The tasks so far have all been about investigating or gathering data. The task this week will look at development.
Task 1. Complete a 5k run at a steady pace throughout and submit your time in the usual way to
Task 2. Watch this clip on Fartlek Training
Task 3. Complete a Fartlek Training session. Design your own session lasting 30 mins. Structure you session with a 5min jog to warm up, 20 mins Fartlek work, 5 mins warm down jog.
For the 20 mins Fartlek work you will have to plan how to do this. examples are,
jog for 10 lamp posts, increased speed for 2 lamp posts.
Music – 1 song = jogging then 1 song increased speed then next song back to jogging and repeat
Use a timer- 2mins jogging, 30 secs increased speed and repeat
Use your app/gps for distance – 300m jog then 100m increased speed and repeat
These are just suggestions and will depend on your level of fitness
NB increased speed does not necessarily mean sprinting.
