Interval Training on the Airdyne

From time to time I like to post some of the interval workouts I do. One thing that amazes me is how hard it is to improve once you hit a certain point.

Workout 2 4 x1 mi. Big Fan

2:39    1:40

2:40   2:00


All rest were to get my heart rate down to 110 beats per minute.  I usually do this about once per week and do 8 x.5 miles another day. In addition I try to do one 5 mile ride and one 7 mile ride.

    I’ve mentioned to Mike that I use my regular cycling seat and not the one that came with the airdyne. I believe that this variable helps me ride much more efficiently, thus lowering my times.
