Question about anaerobic endurance workouts and Friel. He mentions several times that they should not be done without at least 2 years of training in order to prevent burnout. I'm taking this to mean VO2 max intervals (3-10min) and anaerobic intervals (30s-3min) and not 8-12 sec sprints (neuromuscular or power training?).
I plan on entering a few crits this year and I was wondering if I would be dropped if I didn't do any work above LT? I know this entire year is just for learning but how can I work on positioning if I can't hang in there?
Also, on the 30min quick Spinerval workout (A,B,&C) DVD, there is a section of 10sec sprint/50sec rest x 5, 2 min rest, and repeat. These would be considered power training, correct?
