Base Training Fundamentals: 3 Crucial Ingredients in Any Base Phase

In his words, they performed a fartlek workout early in the week. He said the athletes were to change pace for 30 seconds to 5 minutes based on how they felt. Nothing was at a hard effort but it was used to simply provide some change of pace for the legs since most other running is at an easy pace. He also talked about avoiding building up lactic acid during the base phase. So, I encourage athletes to include a fartlek-type workout once per week but like to keep it as just leg speed sessions (quick but controlled efforts lasting less than 30 seconds). The leg speed sessions help them get very fast without stressing the anaerobic system. They then have a very good transition to the faster training later in the season because their leg turnover is so good.
