I did kitchen sink for the first time at the weekend as it was on the plan.
It was pretty painful, not mentally as taxing as first feared being sat for 3 hours on the turbo due to the flicking between different videos to keep it interesting.
However these bits from each video are pretty evil, GVA picked all of the best/worse bits from each one! Managed to get through the video, it was tough at times but I could not manage to do the downward spiral sections at the end for 3 of the longer ones at the start I could only do about half the interval as i was suffering!
Anyone else found this? Having done the knighthood recently I would say that this video is almost as bad just condensed into 3 hours!
I completed it at 100% several months ago and I still do not know how I managed to pull it off. I believe I was due for a FF at that time though. It is the hardest effort I have done on the trainer so far (except for FF, of course, but it’s a different kind of effort).
I made it to the 40 mile mark 2 hrs and 23 minutes of Kitchen Sink today @100% effort, with a few breaks along the way during “The Shovel”. I was completely spent and HANGRY. Next time, I’ll prep with a feedbag or SAG plan.
Kitchen Sink was the closing act to the ToS in either 2017 or 2018 which was a pure act of sadism on GvA’s part. It was the only time I’ve ever done it and as I recall, it was both epic and brutal (especially for a me with a 1 min power weakness).
Congrats on completing it … there should be a badge for this one.
Did kitchen sink today. Unfortunately I had a really good half Monty a couple of days ago and the higher numbers completely killed me. Cracked like egg after an hour, then bonked a bit around 2:20.
I made it to the end but only because the laser goats took pity on me!!
Kudos to anyone who completes this at 100%!!!
I seem to remember Kitchen sink coming from a SufDay around that time. I also remember doing it when it came out and it being doable. I used to line up 1 large (750 ml) bottle per hour and a couple of cereal bars, one after every hour.
