A bit of a rant. I feel like I am failing all around.
Had the Shovel today.One of my favorite workouts and can get through both sets no problem. Not today. Felt like I was breathing through a straw. Bailed after the 4th sprint in the 2nd set.
I struggle to complete the Inspiration z3/sub-threshold workouts. An hour and a half with no recovery intervals? I find myself bailing after 45 minutes due to discomfort and the video not holding my interest.
While others are saying the workouts have been made easier, I’m finding the opposite to be true. Maybe I’m doing FF and HM wrong which is making the workouts harder than they should be???
Over the last two years my average race speed has dropped 2mph, hitting distance goals has become a struggle, my Strava fitness score has dropped into the upper 30s, and my numbers, while incrementally improving are stuck at beginner level fitness for FTP. I usually follow a plan, taking a week or two off between. Rarely miss a workout. I’ve done the MTP many times and always have a big goal each year.
It seems to me I need to do something do different. I don’t know what it is.
