I’ve got a 15 km commute to work with a 4 km section at 4%. I don’t want to ruin myself before work or when I have a workout planned that day but I struggle to restrain myself, often hitting 95% of max HR. Am I overgeared (running 52/36 F, 11-28 back -FTP 238, 182cm, 75kg)? I do like spinning so it’s one thing i’m definitely looking to change.
Any tips out there for how to restrain myself on these climbs?
