Writing Prompt
It's that time again! Time to pull out those ol' dictionaries and find a word that we rarely (if ever!) hear used and write a 7-9-7 that makes us WANT to use it!! Seriously, make us laugh! Make us impressed at your word prowess! Shock our eyebrows into our hairline! But just make us vote for yours! :) :)
A 7-9-7 is a three-line poem such that:

first line -- seven syllables
second line -- nine syllables
third line -- seven syllables


Fartlek, which means "speed play" in Swedish, is continuous training with interval training. Fartlek runs are a very simple form of a long distance run. Fartlek training รข??is simply defined as periods of fast running intermixed with periods of slower running."
