** Changing up our approach on the bike before and at the end of this one. Start out with an easier pace for first 5:00, then push it a bit more on the back end.
** For the 8 rounds in the middle, still looking to refine our ability to paced this at a tough, but repeatable pace. Work with intent, but stay below that redline/threshold .

• Bike Distance = 1500m (2.5 x 600m)
