I did MAP 6 x 2 on the road today (part of all purpose plan). I found it very hard to sustain the 2 minutes with the prescribed power output. I couldn’t do them correctly.
As I analyzed my training, I saw that the prescribed percentage power output for outside ride was far different from the actual power target in the indoor ride.
My current FTP is 273 (after one month off) and the power target in the indoor workout is 373 Watts. About 135 % of FTP and actually my MAP. The outdoor workout is prescribed at 150%… 410 watts…
When I look at other workouts with 2 MAP intervals, it is usually prescribed for outdoor as follow : 100% MAP (115-135% FTP).
So is there a typo error for the MAP 6 x 2 or am I weak today ? or both…?
