Instructions: 

Steady-State Cardio

Be aware that riding on a stationary bike inside is easier than riding outside due to the lack of wind resistence and other weather conditions. Often your pace time inside will not translate outdoors so your RPE level might need to be adjusted.
 

RPE stands for Rate of Perceived Exertion and is based on a 10-point scale.

10 = extreme exertion -- conversation is impossible

8 = high effort -- conversation is extremely labored

6 = optimum effort -- conversation is difficult, but possible

4 = medium effort -- conversation is easy to maintain

2 = warm up
