I’m sure those VO2 blessed folks probably don’t think this workout is that bad, but I’ve been wrestling with this one for a few weeks. I’d say today I finally did it well enough to feel good about it, but man this workout really sucks the life out of you. I’ve done it 3 times in 4 weeks. The first time was a massive failure. Pulled the plug and zone 2’ed it for the remainder. The week after I completed the first set as prescribed, but lowered the remaining two by 5%. Today kept everything 100. i took a couple 15-45 second pauses, but generally survived it. Usually I’m okay with VO2 stuff, not stellar, but not terrible. This progression to 125% with only 1 minute rest though is another level. Oddly, I completed it fine a couple times in previous seasons. I think my FTP may have been a bit underestimated at the time so probably was more in the VO2 system.
