Some background, i am 47 years old and i never trained at anything before i bought myself a mtb. So this summer i have been cycling outdoors on trails but i noticed that i am very weak compared to my fiend and others.
So i started with TrainerRoad and did the ramp test. I got a very low score 153 watt. No suprise there. I am at SSB 1 low volume and atm in week 3.
I have completed all the workouts so far but today it was really really hard for me. It was Eclipse. https://www.trainerroad.com/career/trhuster/rides/41938620-eclipse
I now that this workout is for building muscular endurance and not stress heart and lungs to much. But for some reson my heartrate was very high and at the end i was over 190 bpm and topped out at 196 bpm.
So now to my question, is it wise to give it my all just to complete the workout like i did or is it better to lower the % and monitor my heartrate so it don’t go so high?
