One of the key elements to a successful triathlon is coming off the bike fresh enough to actually "Race" the run portion.  One way to achieve this is to race the bike leg extremely consistently as far as energy output is concerned, or "riding a tight line" on you watts......

Cadence should be above 85 for all the intervals. Heart Rate riders, remember it will take a few minutes for the HR to reach the zone you are looking for.  Try not to over ride the first few minutes to get the HR up.  Use a nice steady effort to get it to climb up into Zone 4.  Power based athletes, you too can ease into the Percentages over the course of the first minute or two.

Reading this workout and are unsure of Heart Rate Zones or what Power is?  Not a problem, just shoot me an email at results@nolimitshammerharder.com

*NOTE* If you are local to Columbus Ohio, we meet at the COTA Park n Ride at 6pm for Intervals.  New Albany, intersection of Beech and Old 161.  Come out and join us!!  All paces are welcome!
