The Workout Of The Day for Tuesday, 11.5.12. “Holey Cow!”

Howdy folks,

Holy cow!

It’s Tuesday, and you know what we haven’t done in a while?


The old Standby, your friend and mine…

The Classic 2×20!

Time to do something about that, like, say… do one today.

 – Warm up.

– Go as hard as you can for 20 minutes.

– Recover for 2 minutes.

– Go again for another 20 minutes.

The idea here is to go as hard as you can for the duration of both intervals without being forced to go easier at the end of the second interval.

If you run out of gas before you finish the second interval, you went too hard.

If your vision isn’t blurry at the end of the second interval, you went too easy.

If you’re doing this with a powermeter, you want your wattage output to be as close to constant as possible. We’re talking 10 watt variance at the most.

Keep it steady.

These take practice to do well, and the better you get, the harder they get.

This workout is great on the trainer, and that’s how I usually do ‘em… in fact, I think this workout is probably best when you do it on the trainer, unless you have a really peaceful stretch of road you can use.

However you wind up doing these, have fun!
