I did spencer +2 this morning first thing. 1/2 banana and some water. Not a great night sleep, but this is the only time I had today.
Warm up and first interval went fine. Under coach Chad advice, I upped the intensity +3%. Blew up 1:30 into the next interval and got off the bike ready to call it a day. 10 seconds off and decided to jump back on and backed off to original 120%. After that interval I backed off to 115% and finished last 3 intervals.
-Are VO2max workouts best left for afternoon (better fueled and ready to “work”)?
-Should I have just bailed and done the work later?
-Is there still a decent benefit to this workout @115%
-Does VO2max raise at the same rate (parallel with) as FTP?
Thanks. I’m in the last week of SSB2 Mid before taper week, and I would like to be able to start build plan strong.
