i’ve done two rides in 2018 ZA, and i suck!
in particular, both ride1 and ride2 have had high-watt 1 minute intervals at the end, and on both rides i blew up at the end of the third interval. like had to stop and slow my heart down blow-up. hit my max HR of 185 and just hit the wall.
the rest of the ride was hard, but totally in the range of what i can do – but those intervals are murdering me!
how do i get better at these? is it common to struggle this badly on ZA rides? every other training ride i’ve done has been “easily” finished; i’ve never blown up, and the closest i’ve come was maybe tagging 180 HR on the most intense segment with a nice sizable cool down immediately afterwards.
