The plan for today was (2) sets of 5 @ 2 on 2 off with 5 min rest between sets. Target wattage for the 2 minutes on was 345W with a range of 325W - 355W. The first 4 intervals were OK with an average wattage of around 340W and the fifth was done at around 335W. The legs and hips were getting tight and I really wasn't looking forward to the second set.
I decided to drop the wattage back to 335W and it must be a mental thing, as once you dial the intensity back, it was hard to even keep the wattage above 300W. I finished the first 3 at around 335W, the fourth I stopped after 90 seconds with a wattage of 315W and the fifth I finished at 320W. Not happy with the second set but I'm glad I completed it.
Tomorrow calls for 1 set of 10 @ 1 min on 1 min off in a range of 366W - 400W. 5 minute rest then lead-out intervals - (4) sets 8 x 15 sec on 15 sec off with 1 min between sets. I really need to focus on starting out at or just below the bottom half of the range or I won't be able to complete the set.
