So I took a bit of a step back and did Baird today, 1min intervals at 120%. I’ve also successfully done Bluebell and Bashful in the not too distant past (June), gets challenging toward the end of each set but most definitely doable. I’m historically bad at really nailing the 2-3min stuff.
Was curious if anyone has taken a slower progression to getting to the 3min 120% intervals, perhaps by doing a couple of weeks with 1min intervals at 120%, a couple of weeks with workouts with 90sec intervals, etc. as opposed to just jumping up each week or doing something like Bluebell, Baird or Bashful 2 times in one week. Ultimately this is a bit of an offshoot of that mini vo2 plan that has been floated here in the forum.
I’m trying not to get overly focused on the vo2 stuff, as there are other types of intervals I need to do for CX racing, just thinking through ways to more gradually improve and adapt to increasing the time at 120%
