I don't disagree with that. I'll rarely get on my trainer and just ride.

That's probably working slightly different systems than the traditional 2x20 (which are 2-3 min rest), but I couldnt really say exactly how. I'd imagine they could/should be done at slightly higher watts. Also explains why you can do 3. You should ask your coach The idea with the short break is that it is really just a mental break and there is little recovery so you are effectively doing a longer threshold interval.

Mr. Cleetus wrote:shouldn't that be 1x60min Mr. 3x20?? Sounds tough!
Sounds like your coach and I are believing the same source on this - maybe you should listen to me more often. kidding...
sounds like your workout is set flightless: 40min of torture on the trainer!
