Rules for tough intervals

Not to get anyone in a defeatist state of mind…I’ve enumerated these before but indulge me and let me explicitly list these. Now I’ll be more accountable when I’m tempted to break one of these. :smiling_imp:

1.) Never end a workout during a recovery period. Always start the next interval. If you need to get off the bike and walk around a little bit, great, but always get back on and start the next interval.

2.) Never start an interval at less than 100% of workout intensity.

3.) Always try to make it half way through the interval at 100% intensity.

4.) Never reduce intensity by more than a few percent. Give it at least 30 seconds. A minute is better.
