Finished Team Scream today and it was a blast… I think I need to re-do the 4DP (Half or Full Frontal) as I wasn’t completed spent but certainly felt it (was running at 105%). I honestly don’t know about the training benefit but I enjoyed the 70 minutes of team trialing away.
If you need a fun workout (there are sooo many to choose from), think about the Team Scream one.
Did it today for the first time and totally agree. I used to live in that area (Stavanger). Riding it whilst pretending to be a pro cyclists with a helicopter hovering over Hafrsfjord, that’s just awesome.
Re the intensity: my FF was three weeks ago, so the training intensity should be pretty much as intended. It doesn’t break you, but gives a massive sense of satisfaction having completed that.
I did it today and it was absolutely brutal. This is the first SUF workout that I don’t manage to finish at 100%. I’ve completed 9 hammers, AVDP,… and nothing has come close to this.
I did 9 hammers last Friday with FTP 333 and MAP 409 W. Since I completed it, I did a half monty on Saturday and may new numbers were FTP 348 and MAP 428 W. Team scream today was the first long workout that I tried with the new numbers (I did cash register yesterday but that’s only 30 min).
My rider profile is time trialist so I though this was going to be manageable… after about 20 min (not counting the warm up), I realized that my heart rate wasn’t going down in the below-threshold sections. I felt they were too short for me and I needed more rest after going above threshold. At 30 min, I had to pause the video. I tried to finish at 100% but after 5 more minutes it became very evident it wasn’t going to happen. I ended up dialing down to 97% (close to my old numbers) and it was still a struggle. My heart rate was always higher than the target by about 10 bpm.
Don’t get me wrong, this is a very fun workout. It would have been unbearable as a no-vid workout and I hope I finish it at 100% someday.
A good dose of humility after getting really excited about my new FTP and MAP numbers.
