Taylor-2 was my first VO2 max workout and I agree; I was looking at the workout description the day before thinking, man that looks hard… I really hope I don’t crash. My post-rides notes were: felt good, challenging, was hard, but how a hard workout should feel.
This has been my favorite part of TrainerRoad. The FTP ramp test seems to have accurately gauged my ability, and the workouts have so far all been within my ability. When the workout starts to become challenging, I can dig in harder knowing that the workouts are programmed for me to be pushed, but ultimately succeed.
