20 MINUTE WARM UP easy
3 X 1 MIN SPIN UPS WITH 1 MINUTE REST (increase intensity and rpms to 100-120rpm)
5 MINUTES EASY
5 MINUTES HARD (This should be a practice for the main set, find your level of intensity that is the max sustainable pace)
10 MINUTES EASY
20 MINUTE TIME TRIAL EFFORT (max sustainable pace in self- selected cadence of choice)
10 MINUTE COOLDOWN
25 mins very easy cap top of Z1 would like half of this as a walking effort and preferably on a soft surface to mitigate ground reaction force and impact stress. This is a great workout to do on a hiking or nature trail. Don't get sluggish in cadence because of the easy nature of this workout. Goal Cadence should still be around 90 steps per minute.
Think of this as sharpening the saw. It should make you feel better not trying to get anything accomplished here but just facilitating recovery
100 Pull Buoy
200 as 50 Kick on R side / 50 kick on L side
2 x 100 @ Z4 on :20 seconds Rest

We take the average HR from the last 20 minutes of the 30 minute effort. Some athletes may choose to hit the lap button at the 10 minute mark to get clean data. It is imperative that the athlete is trying their best for the full 30 minutes.
