For me stepping up training in Jan ready for London , this whole new training seems to have helped everything elese i do , got it explained to me my Mike Gatton and never looked back ! I am a runner for less than a year  and if you have not tried it it , just do one seasion a week and youll see the benfits.

I have a 10k coming up at the end of the month, in Greenwich Park, and I'm currently using Fartlek as training for it.  It's going well.  I'm looking to shave a few minutes off my current time of 45m, run in the BUPA 10k, which I think is achievable.  It was my first marathon this year, which I finished in 4:29, but I want to beat that.  Good luck to everyone who has joined this challenge, so far.

I'm doing my 1st half in Cardiff on the 6th October and been working hard in the hot weather, also started to incorporate some speed work too so hopefully I will reap the benefits on race day! Currently clocking up 12.5 miles at 8.20mi...fingers crossed I can maintain this or better my time on the day. (Got an all-inclusive holiday in Menorca next week, will train as much as poss over there :-(() yikes!!

There are loads of fartlek type sessions at FX-Sport. You can download pre-prepared sessions and upload them to their wireless headphones. You get all time notifications and instruction voiced to you. You can even add your own messages in your words. It works better because there is also a built in mp3 player [sounds great]. My runs have taken a new lease of life! www.fx-sport.co.uk/workouts
