The 40k tt workouts—specifically the practice tt workouts on thursdays—are crushing me. Any suggestions for how to scale these to make them doable?
I’m doing the mid volume 40k tt plan to work on something a bit different. I typically race crits but last fall I decided to schedule a tt on my birthday (mid February) to have a goal on the calendar.
I’m 2 weeks into the plan and have had no issues with the other workouts so far and fact I’ve been pleased with how the last few workouts have felt—except for Dardanelles -2 and today’s Dardanelles -1.
I completed 2/3 of D -2 and was looking to improve on that but couldn’t make it through 10 min of -1. Both times I’ve felt like I’m holding on for dear life for the entire time I’ve attempted the workout.
So how to go about scaling these? I’d like to make the most of these workouts and it seems like getting through only small chunks of them isn’t the way to go about it.
