Last night I switched gears, so we speak. My bike intervals went from 2/1s to 5/1s, which means pedaling hard for 5 minutes, rest for 1 minute and repeat 6 times. With a 5 min warmup and 5 min cooldown, I got a nice 45min workout. By the third interval I was starting to wonder whether my coach wanted me to reach my max heart rate or was doing some sort of evil experiment on me. Of course it didn't help that I chose level 10 on the bike to add some nice resistance and tried to stay above 100rpms for all 5 minutes at each interval. As a result I was sweating buckets of water and was about to pass out by the end, starving! I finished by biking 20.2km with an average pace of 2.14min/km. I felt proud, thus a blog post.
