There’s more than one way to get an aerobic threshold session done. One of the ways is to slightly reduce your normal “off” time and have the set last for 40 minutes or more. This session simply takes five seconds off the normal times I would do the various parts of the main set. It is also longer than most sessions I would normally do, coming in at 4,000m, but varied enough to not be boring or monotonous (at least I think so).
All the usual disclaimers apply, this set is designed by and for me, you’re free to try it or adapt it, but do so at your own risk etc.
