I have almost 700 TR sessions under my belt, so I’ve had my share of failed workouts.
I marched through SSBLV 1, and moved into SSBLV 2 without any change in FTP. Things were progressing very nicely, until the final week. Lamarck had to be adjusted down, but I limped through it on Thursday.
While licking my wounds, I thought I’d give myself an extra recovery day, and tackle Leconte on Sunday. Felt good and rested this AM. Got extra sleep ALL WEEK due to quarentine, so felt locked and loaded for a killer session. After the first 10 min interval of Leconte, I knew it wasn’t happening. Lowered intensity 5% for second round of 10 min interval, but HR was out of control 5 min into the third 10 min interval.
Bailed at that point.
Attempted 45 min version of Monitor, but during second 6 min interval, HR was in the red zone. Usually it’s at least 15 BPM lower for that effort. Decided to bail again.
Not sure what’s going on, but assume rest and recovery is in order.
