anybody else doing over/unders right now?

Last couple of weeks my program's feature has been over/unders: 10 minute interval, first 8 minutes at FTP, and cadence of 100, last 2 minutes maximal effort at cadence of 110-120, 5 minutes rest, repeat.


Just wanted to say how much these really suck. Anyone sharing the pain?

Makes sense to do them when no racing. It's the hardest solo workout I can recall doing, and as close as I can get to race intensity by myself.

We're in a lull with no racing in Florida this time of year, so I suppose that's why my coach has them on the schedule now. (Either that or he's just a sadistic prick.)

No.

Training is for wussy.

Actually, I do two "mini-races" a week (T/H). 1:45 and 1:30 respectively.

BTW, are you doing Palatka?

And there's races here. One next Tuesday @ Lake Louisa, another on August 7th. And four in Atlanta next weekend.
