VO2 Max

My power numbers are so low that it seems just plain wrong to use the word “Max”, nevertheless the power meter keeps me honest and the set was most definitely difficult. So much so that I wanted to quit after six intervals.

The set was
5:00 w/u
10 x 2:00 @ 274W on 1:00 RI
5:00 w/d

Intervals averaged 272W which is just over 113% of FTP – that pots me smack in the middle of my VO2 Max zone (254-288W).


Glad I did it.
Average power for each 2:00 Interval: 272, 272, 272, 272, 273, 268, 270, 270, 271, 277
I doubt I could have been more consistent with an ergo trainer.
