Alternate between hills and HIIT! Four sets of hill efforts, five 1:1 HIIT sets and a mix to finish with one of my favorite “finish songs”. This is a challenging ride so, as always, coach riders to manage intensity. I’ve built in a few specific refuels and the hills can be below threshold.
“Pace” in this profile is coaching riders to find a steady RPM and resistance, below threshold with enough resistance to have something to work with when it’s time to “HIIT it” and go to a high intensity effort, breathy but not breathless.
Have fun, make it your own and let me know how it goes!
Stay safe, stay smart and STAY AWESOME!
