All of you who can finish this workout are absolute beasts. I have it scheduled for Wednesday and I give myself the chance of completion at 30%. I’m staring down the barrel of my first failed workout. 10 min threshold x 5 where the last 2 min is borderline Vo2.
5x10-minute over-under first 45 seconds of each minute are spent within 5% of your FTP while the remaining 15 seconds in every minute are spent at increasingly suprathreshold intensities between 110-125% FTP.
Ha! Unfortunately my ramp test was set to the trainer so it won’t be an easier.
Yes I’m not sure either. I’m new to TrainerRoad and so far I think all of the sessions have been Over Unders or stuff like this, which seems to end with the last 2 min of each set with Vo2. Mind you I would mentally struggle to do 2 or 3 by 20 min threshold. I’d get bored.
Because VO2max and over/under workouts are highly effective at getting you faster.
Edit: to add to this, if you have a reason to want to extend your TTE and add more 100% sustained efforts, you could swap over/under work for those kind of workouts. But in TR plans you’ll see sustained / TTE work mostly in the specialty phase.
