The Goal Of This Session: is to improve your short term muscular endurance simulating a solo breakaway.

Initiating a successful solo breakaway is most of the hardest tasks in bike racing. Its also one of the most rewarding
so it makes sense to do some specific training to increase your chances of getting away and staying away.

A solo attack requires a near maximal effort the get the initial gap, then several minutes around threshold to extend the lead.
