Today's session continues to focus on developing your endurance and aerobic conditioning which are fundamental attributes for anyone looking to perform the Absa Cape Epic, which has 100km + days with 2800m of climbing!
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 Absa Cape Epic is 8 days of back to back riding, so we need to be replicating this to a degree in training so try and ride your bike for a few days in a row after this session.
