For variety, I decided to do my 5 x 10 min Sweet Spot session outside today but I can’t sustain them exactly in the Sweet Spot zone and they fluctuate between Zone 1 and Zone 6 but average roughly what I am attempting…also I did one 30 min interval and overall I completed the session but when I looked at my zones I actually spent:
- 18 min Tempo
- 9 mins Sweet Spot
- 14 min Threshold
- 8 mins VO2 Max
- 16 mins Anaerobic
Do I still get the adaptations which these Sweet Spot sessions are aiming for or am I just better off doing them inside in ERG mode?
Outside intervals are easier for me as I don’t find myself struggling to sustain the effort because outside when I am flagging, I just stand up and pedal harder and my watts just increase again to the desired average.
