Workout: Interval Ride

my bike

Sunday 6/29: Bike 57:24, 18.72 miles @ 19.6 AVS (hilly loop)

With a strong wind out of the West/Northwest this was a hard effort. I rode the hilly loop course at interval pacing, which involves alternating 2:00 hard followed by 1:00 recovery.

I've worked it out now where I can start this pattern so that I am using the climbs as WI's and the downhill sections as RI's without breaking the 2-1 pattern very much.

It's also nice to get two solid workouts in on consecutive days. I feel so much better when I do that, mentally and physically.
