FTP block and FTP Progression 3: 5 x 8

Wanted a bit more effor and the MAP block looked a bit forbidding.

Last time I did this I did two weeks + recovery.
We are away next week and I may not take bike, but use hotel’s gym, so decided on thee week on, recovery next week.

So I was faced with
FTP Progression 3: 5 x 8

That is a fairly tough ride.

I stopped pedalling in final recovery interval, it kept to the timing.

I have an event coming in 2 1/2 weeks, which may not be the hilliest, though it does include one tough hill peaking at 18%. Total including cycling there and back will be over 120 miles
