Sub-threshold intervals criss-cross to ‘fire hose’ the bathtub. If you fill up the bathtub about 3/4 full and then every two minutes, take a firehose to it, then right before it floods the bathroom floor, you turn it off, and let it drain out to 3/4's full again... repeat.... This will help to improve the size of your 'drain'.

Warm-up 15 minutes

Do 3 x 1 minute fast pedaling intervals, just like yesterday then do

Crisscross 2x15 intervals with 5 min. recovery between each interval.

Ride at watts of 85-90% of FTP (closer to 90%), then every 2 minutes, pop it up to 120% of FTP for 30 seconds, recover back to previous pace -85-90%, but nothing below 85%!

Recover 10 mins. after first 15 minute and also easy after 2nd one too.

Finish with 2 VO2 max intervals

2 X 5mins. @ 115% of FTP watts 
Rest for 5 minutes between each.

Cool-down for 15 minutes
