It's hard to look down if you don't go up

Don't look up. Just look at the ground about 4 feet in front of you and concentrate on using those fantastic butt muscles we all have...
here is a question for you all. When you do your fartlek workout do you worry about your distance and time or your workout. I did my 5k run tonight and incorporated my fartlek workout and my time was 4 min slower then my steady run. Is this normal or I'm I doing something wrong. Thanks.
I usually find that too, since the recovery time between intervals is slower than your speed interval is fast...does that make any sense? For me, it's just about the workout. I work on trying to do either one more interval as I increase or to try to increase the interval pace, but I don't care at all about total time. Just as long as I'm home in time for coffee and breakfast!
