I've heard alot about how good fartlicks are for long distance training but what exactly is a fartlick? How often should fartlicks be used in practice? Is this type of practice good for improving speed, endurance or what? Help me please A Coach in need of clarity

It will improve speed and the ability to do lots of speed bursts during a race, instead of doing one and being worn out.
