Farklets, fartleks.. whatever....
I was doing a Google search on 'farklets' and I was very impressed to see that my blog came up as the top search! But.. how.. can.. that be? Then I realize that it's fartleks. I always think of farklets because I used to haunt fark.com all the time, and because, frankly, fartlek sounded too funny, too inconceivable as a term for running. Fart-lek.. huh huh (beavis and butthead moment).
Anyways, yes, it's swedish for 'speed play', which means I can thank the Swedes for Mats Sundin, half the furniture in my condo and a funny word that I used in my runs once in awhile, FARTLEK.
