Howdy, I’m quite new to the forum, so be gentle! ha!
So today I attempted Jacks +1 after a recent biggish ftp increase. Needless to say, I blew up after 6 minutes of the first big suprathreshold interval. I decided to bail the entire workout and settled for some75 minute indurance work instead, which I can handle.
This is the second week I’ve bailed on these kind of intervals. I know I am struggling because of my recent ftp increase (I am now at 4watts/kg) - I was worried that my ftp was too high, so I recently tested it again and came out with the same ftp number, so I guess I should be able to handle these kind of workouts. Anyway, I was just after some words of wisdom as to how to get through these big supratheshold intervals. Any ideas? Or should I just grow a pair!? heh heh
