In the Olympic Triathlon Build plans, the key bike workouts are :
- 1 VO2Max workout per week
- 1 Supra Threshold (eg. Red lake, Raymond, Elephants ) workout per week
In the Half Distance Triathlon Build plans, the key bike workouts are :
- 1 VO2Max per week during the first 4 weeks, 1 Supra threshold workout for the last 4 weeks.
- 1 Over-under workout per week
So both plans have VO2Max work and Supra Threshold work. The main purpose of these workouts is raising VO2Max (and FTP).
Question is about the Over-Under workouts. Why are the over-unders in the Half Distance Plan, and not in the Olympic plan ? Why is 1 VO2Max/Supra Threshold workout + 1 over-under better for half distance vs 1 Vo2Max and 1 supra Threshold for olympic distance ?
