4. On Your Bike

There's no better way to start moving on, than on your bike. Put all of your emotions and feelings into some super cool bike rides!

5. Build It Up

Start by riding your normal distance, in a safe manner of course. During your ride, think about your crush and those negative emotions. It's time to smash them out of your system. 

Find the biggest climb or sprint section on your ride and give it your all, just like interval training.

Focus all your emotions, feelings like sadness, anger, loss, grief into that one interval. 

After the interval ride easy and feel those negative ions flow out of your body down the road, blown away by the wind behind you.

Repeat, until you feel physically tired, having enough energy to ride back home.

6. Stretch it Out

Don't stop there, make one of your normal training rides longer, so if you do 40 miles, then do 50 and if you do 50 miles, then do 65 etc.
