  • I always put in a movie when I ride my bike, makes the time fly by...great idea regarding the change of pace creating intervals! emoticon - by IAMDESERVING
  • Great idea for the bike, I'm going to try that today. When I'm walking, I like to use the distance between the telephone poles for interval training alternating with increased pace and regular pace. It sure makes the walk go by faster, especially if I've forgotten music. - by LYNNIERN
  • I like the idea. If I had a treadmill or stationary bike I'd do it. - by BUCKHOLDT
