Hi and thanks for your answers.
I will try the 1,000 meter test next time to see if my CV is different.
But I found this test much more difficult in term of pacing, it’s hard to find the correct good pace during 1000 meters and also mentally. Especially if we have to do it every 3 weeks.
and thanks for your advices and feedback, it’s very interesting 🙂
I’m already using intervals for those long rides and indead is super usefull. I will definitively give a try to your point 2. Like for a swimming workouts, it can be very useful to use some on these intervals to focus on drills, I like the idea 🙂
Thanks a lot ! 😉
You said about 20% more difficult but I feel like it’s much more ahahah
I use your advise and indeed it helps. For instance, for CF17 which is a 2h30min ride with 70 minutes Z1, 70 minutes Z2 and 10 minutes Z1 I split these long intervals into in 3 x (20 minutes in Z1), 3 x (25 minutes Z2/3 minutes Z1), 10 minutes Z1.
At the end, I don’t feel more tire than a “normal ride”, but it’s much harder mentally to stay focused. With 20 minutes intervals it’s easier.
thank you, I missed this paragraph. I will do this next rest week !
PS: The plan is really great. Very complete, easy to follow, with lots of explanations and documentation. Very good job 🙂
Thanks for the tips !
Yes indeed, the intervals make training more fun. I wonder if I would be able to put the same quality in these intervals if I do them in the middle of a long session ?
I will give it a try soon 🙂
