April 18, 2018 – Bike

This week we will continue to put in time in the saddle with this varying intensity workout.

For the moderate effort today you should not feel gassed at the end. Think of a pace you could hold for an hour, and notice the cadences are different. If you’re able to ride outside on some hills today, go for it!
