"Clay- Thanks for calling this out, I'll clarify the plan, but it's meant to increase up to 85% then come down till you feel up to pushing back up again. Glaf to see its working and congrats on making it this far."

8 month mountaineering plan question

In the 8 month training plan, some of the headings tell me to focus on interval training. There's no specific directions for this. When it tells me to do 80 minutes of cardio at 85% MHR, am I supposed to interval train with this number for a specific time interval and then another interval at a lower heart rate? Or am I supposed to do 80 minutes at 85% the whole time?
