I’m finding that I’m missing the mark with my threshold workouts, but smashing VO2 max and SS. The problem I face is that I can complete 4×10min @102% FTP threshold workouts by reducing intensity to 95%. I can also complete 7×5min @102% FTP threshold workouts by reducing intensity to 97%. After both of these workouts I’m pretty cooked.
My questions is, will longer intervals with a greater reduction in intensity be more beneficial than shorter intervals with less of an intensity reduction?
