Wednesday 7/13 Workout: Cardio Endurance Day

Wednesdays are cardio endurance days. Today, we will do a 70 minute workout on the bike (with optional running). We will do some effort shifts on the bike, but stay within our aerobic zone throughout the workout. For those who want to mix it up, when we are at “steady state” bike, you may choose to run instead!
