Mega Pyramid

Hello all! It’s been a long time!

Last night’s class began with driving to the gym in sunshowers and rainbows everywhere! Look how pretty!


This was one of the best classes I’ve had in a long time, and one of my most challenging playlists. We went through a Power Interval Pyramid–after a 15 minute warmup sequence, the pyramid takes you through the next 27 minutes. On each progressively longer interval (which peak at 4 mintues), the goal is to maintain an intensity of 8 on a 1-10 difficulty scale OR keep your heartrate between 80-85% of maximum.

It is an individual measure–some people need that tension up high and push, and some take the speedy endurance route. Watch your watts (power output) on your computer if you are not wearing a heart rate monitor–it will help you gage how hard you are working, and will help you see if you ease up on that intensity at any point in time.
