 32. How hard is too hard? | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 00:10:16

In this episode, Luke discusses two questions: 1. Should threshold and VO2 max workouts be separated? 2. When is the right time to increase the pace of your intervals? METS is trialing a pricing restructure in February. New clients can book a VO2 max test for $99 (down from $185) by using the coupon code 99TEST when booking online here: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=12661043&appointmentType=1758712 For more info, sign up to our free content at https://go.metsperformance.com/free-mets-mastermind
