Looking at the description of the workout and my results, you may see a slight discrepancy. Obviously, I’m supposed to continue the iterations until my form or pace dissipates and I ended up finishing on my best time. I am still struggling on the bike to judge the effort to put into each iteration due to lack of experience. After the first and slowest iteration I decided to ramp it up each time. After going all out for the last 1/4M of the third iteration I realized how smoked I was and since I had my best time yet, I ended on the high note!
