discouraged to fall below this “critical threshold” to avoid premature exhaustion. The W′ estimated from the BIF accounted for 5.2% (1.1%) of the total work during the TT20. This finding also shows that this small contribution of W′ explains 57% of the variance of work completed above CP during the TT20
