Today's Varying Threshold session is centered around your threshold, but unlike for a traditional training plan for the road, there is some specific cadences to ride at for some of the efforts, where we alternate between your chosen / go to cadence and a low cadence as we often end up riding at on a mountain bike.
We are going to push ourselves right up to our threshold, by completing 6 efforts, split in to two blocks of 3 efforts (90%, 95% and 100% of our FTP). As the intensity goes up, the volume goes down so this session is definitely manageable and is a nice building block rather than leaving you totally exhausted for tomorrow.
The first block will alternate between your chosen cadence and a low cadence of 65rpm.
