hmm, this page has got quite a few hits. I’ll have to write a more complete version of my own.

I myself lay down a solid base of high volume (for a 57-year-old, anyway) during the summer and winter months. But I leaven that with little bursts of speed every week. I’ll throw in some short & fast fartlek, a shorter than usual tempo run of 15 minutes, 6-10 x 150 quick strides uphill after a medium-long run, 6×80 yard strides after every distance run, etc. I like to keep things loose and quick all year round.

Very sensible Jeff.
