I'm doing the Bedford half next Sun & have been thinking about running the race involving a fartlek strategy. Basicly the idea is I run the first quarter mile or as near as faster than race pace (30 to 40 secs faster) then resume a more comfortable pace. I would try to avoid the speed quarter mile on any substantial inclines.
I have done an 11 miler today adopting this & had it been race day I would have knocked at least 2 mins off my p.b.
Seems to work for me but wondered if anyone else runs this way? Any advice greatly appreciated!
