Hi there. Another fascat noob question. Sorry! I just want to make sure I’m not cutting myself short!
Tomorrow is my first fascat vo2 workout. I’ve read all the instructions to do so. But tomorrow’s workout is only 2 sets of 2x3min. If I check the target wattage on training peaks it is 409 watts.
A few weeks ago i completed a similar workout using a different platform and the requirement was 2 sets of 3x3m at 120%. I over shot that and averaged 441w over the course of all 6 work intervals.
So in my super critical mind, I’m going from 6 intervals now down to 4. Do I just aim for a higher percentage of ftp? It is nice having a baseline target that I know I should be able to complete fairly easily due to a lesser amount of intervals. But I guess my question is, is this detrimental to my training? I don’t want to detrain, but also switched to fascat because I’m tired of feeling over trained.
Or is the key to do less intervals, and a higher higher power and quality, and I’m achieving the same benefit?
I’m a stickler for following plans and a perfectionist when it comes to completing my workouts to a “T”.
