Just finished first ride in my plan on TR. I do most of my indoor training in the evenings so I don’t know if this contributed or what was going on, but 280 out of my 305 (ramp tested Sunday) threshold felt like pushing lead. I even double checked calibration during warm up, I thought something was broken (could have just been my mind was broken).
I suffered through 4 out of the 5 intervals of antelope, and made a decision to bail before the last one. I’m going home from isolation today to my kids and didn’t want to be completely toast (and to protect my immune system a little). I just wanted some feedback as to whether there is still training benefit of getting through 4 out of the 5 or if sweet spot training is more a matter of you have to complete the set to achieve the load you need for adaptation?
Any other tips to avoid dead legs on an early morning workout? I take a mediation which causes issues if you become dehydrated and it’s hard to drink when you are asleep!
Still, I wish I could have finished the set, but marginally proud of getting through 4 when I wasn’t sure I could get through the bloody warmup!
