Today I did tecumseh for the first time and didn’t make it 50% of the way through. I love sprints - 30/30s - and V02 work. Didn’t think this would be difficult at all - saw it on the schedule and went after it with gusto.
Then I hit the first block ! 15/15 is really hard in ERG and my trainer was killing me - i was over/under the targets at all times. Resistance all over and never settled well. None the less I knew the suffer to reach for so I was hitting the overs just fine, under the unders.
I got 2-3 done and had to back-pedal. Another 2 and a pause…recovery valley and i had to backpedal through it. This repeated for the next two blocks - I started blowing off unders, overs, 15 here, 15 there…about 40% through the ride I switched to resistance and just buzzed 200w till i was done which lasted another 5 min.
Anyone else struggle on this one?
This pyramid-format VO2max workout grows the number of 15/15’s (125% FTP/88% FTP) as high as 12 per set before stepping back down to where it started at 6 repeats.
