Why do I suck at longer vo2 intervals (3 mins+)

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

I recall seeing a study a while back on, if memory serves, Ironman competitors. They found examples of top athletes that used each of those "tune-out and distract" and "tune-in and reframe" techniques, with a slight bias in toward tuning-in amongst the top competitors. But it sounds like either can work, depending on one's personal inclinations.

@TheKaiser... Don't worry, I know! Mental health is a field with which I am familiar. :twisted:
