Good for you! I like doing Pandora intervals, mostly because I get too distracted to do the sort of 30 secs fast / 30 sec slow intervals prescribed in the article. (Since I'm not training for anything, I can be sloppy.)
Supposedly, I can program my Garmin to beep at intervals, but I have yet to figure out how to do that reliably. I'll figure it out one of these days...but until I do, I like the surprise of spinning fast or slow depending on the tune. A certain amount of randomness is fun, too.
We succeed when we create conditions for success - and when we can't do that, we create conditions for succeeding within constraints.

I admire your discipline. I can't hack riding a trainer.
Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.
Miss my blogs? Find me at WordPress - HillSlug98239 Wanna cheer each other on at an activity tracker site? I'm on Strava (Kim Kremer), GarminConnect(HillSlug98239), and MapMyFitness (Kim Kremer), and Endomondo (Kim Kremer). Yes, that's a touch on the obsessive side.
I will probably try one of these when I get bored with my current workout. Right now I am doing a basic interval workout using my pandora radio. I start with a long song for the warm up, then do a hard interval for the next song. Alternating hard and easy intervals for 9 songs or 30ish minutes (I went 33 minutes last time) my last "hard" interval was pretty weak on Thursday because a 4.5 minute song came on and I didn't have that much left in the tank. It worked out pretty well at the end though, "under the bridge" by red hot chili peppers came on when it was time to get off the bike and stretch.
