Work out with the Pros: Osslerian Fartleks with HOKA NAZ Elite’s Scott Fauble

This workout is called an Osslerian Fartlek. It’s basically an interval workout where you are changing paces during the hard intervals. 

1st minute: 10K effort (4:30-4:35 pace)

2nd minute: 5K effort (4:20-4:24 pace)

Next 30 seconds: 3K effort  (about 4:15 pace)

Last 30 seconds: Surge

In between the intervals jog easy for 3 minutes.

The purpose of this workout is to prepare us to race. Ok, that’s a little too obvious. But seriously, it’s a race specific session in a number of ways.

This workout teaches you to be smooth at a quick pace and forces you to work on staying smooth even as the pace increases. It also teaches you to surge even when you aren’t feeling good — hopefully equipping you with the ability to both make really hard moves to break open a race and cover moves that other people make.

More simply, this workout is really hard. You really have to dig to hit this session, so lace up your Carbon X and try to crush it.
