I’m following SSB Mid Volume 2 (have completed Volume 1). I still have difficulties completing some workouts.
I was doing today “Mary Austin” and boy I suffered. I haven’t been able to complete that last block of 10 minutes. Yesterday I did Bluebell and I also stopped earlier. I know this is all about the ability to suffer and the have mental strength. So call me a pussy that I did not finish, I’m just sharing honest experience
For longer workouts (1,5h or 2h) I also always take a short break of 2 minutes somewhere in the middle. I realize I should not do it but this little break allows me to finish it. I have re-checked my FTP and got two times the same value so that should be correct.
So I was wondering what is the best thing to do know.
- Decide to take that little break and finish them
- Reshuffle my plan a bit and redo some specific workouts (e.g. take an additional week to redo some trainings)
- Lower my FTP a bit so it becomes possible again
Any advice here?
