Go on then - what's the difference?

Well my source says fartlek has active recoveries whereas intervals you stop between reps. So there.

It's where you pat a cat vigorously until it farts on you.

Annnnd repeat.

I reckon your source has just made up a definition to suit themselves. You wouldn't get a mark in PE Studies for that definition.

So now I'll fail every unit at high school. Thanks a lot.

Actually we didn't do any theory type stuff in PE when I was at high school so I would have lost marks for being a smart arse (or a fart arse with Tash's definition).

To be fair to him though, he didn't actually say you stop for intervals. I made that up. I think my run yesterday did match the definition of fartlek though in that it was totally unstructured. So there.
