I listen to the pod and spend a fair amount of time on here, but I’m struggling to find a clear answer. Feel free to link me to the correct thread and I’ll scrap this.
Occasionally, especially at the end of a workout, I’ll struggle to complete the last couple intervals. Is it better to turn down the intensity and finish the interval, or backpedal / take a break and shorten it? Does this answer vary for VO2/Anaerobic intervals versus Threshold / Tempo intervals?
If I were to guess, I’d say highest intensity VO2 and higher, it’s about time at the upper limits so cut short, don’t cut the intensity and then for longer sustain type of intervals, the opposite is true. Just a guess, but I’d like to get input from those more informed than me.
