I fartleked

Yes, sometimes when I go for runs I….fartlek. I’m sorry but even though “fartlek” (the Swedish word for speed play, yes I googled it because it’s so freaking ridiculous…) is a real word, who the hell in the running world “ok’d” that as our term for interval training runs?!? Seriously folks, FARTLEK? I have FIVE kids and oh yeah I WAS a kid and there is NO way someone with kids, or a working memory decided this was going to be a word to be proud admitting you do in public. Excuse me now please, I need to go change my shorts. From running fartleks. Yeah, that’s right, I’m all outta pride.
