The notion that I have to be all #getoffylawn about the concept of fartlek pains me.
It is not intervals, you do not pluralize the word and you most certainly should not be throwing up at the end of the workout.

Might be an old-fashioned thing. My dad did them in high school. I asked my (younger) track coach one time and he had never heard of them.
Not to get all frat boy on you, but I'm surprised the name of the activity has survived ridicule. This was a few years ago, but I mentioned the term to my high school cross country teammates and was almost dumped in the lake immediately.
Thanks for the reminder that I'm of an age range equivalent to the parents of fucking Assistant Professors. Thanks.
"them"- dude, it's a descriptor, not a thing.
Ok, I totally didn't know you couldn't pluralize is. 🙁

It's the same kind of word as drinking. What are you doing? Drinking? No, fartlek.
Not a verb either.
Oh, fartlek. Brings back memories. Memories that are probably best left in the corner covered in dust.
Neither is "drinking".
fartlek is supposed to be *fun*, PiT!
