The Model on GMTI

Noticed that the settings have MAP at 100% but FTP at 80%. Help me out Wahoo Science folks. Is this correct or did something get lost in translation from Sufferlandrian to English?

Noticed that myself, thought it was GvA just adding some extra suffering!

I also noticed this. It would make the โ€˜undersโ€™ easier, so is maybe a reasonable adjustment.

Personally, based on how Iโ€™m feeling, Iโ€™ll most likely be reducing the MAP intensity as well when I get to this tomrrow.


Isnโ€™t the whole session based on FTP though? The overs are a percentage of FTP and considered an FTP effort, not a MAP effort?

Nope - the yellow Over sections are based on your MAP values.

Right you are. Iโ€™m sure when I did it last week it was all blueโ€ฆ I mean, itโ€™s been a fairly eye-bleeding last week so I could have been seeing things, butโ€ฆ

Ha ha ha, yes, tell me about it!
I think that the very first delivery of the workout (pre-video release) might have been all blueโ€ฆ


Yes I believe this was the case too. Itโ€™s definitely yellow now though! :joy:

Iโ€™m pretty sure that the special challenge of Model is due to inadequate recovery because the recovery intervals (at the beginning and end) are so close to threshhold. By reducing FTP, youโ€™ll get more recovery and the intervals should be easier. So I think it makes sense.


So, it may make sense, but Iโ€™m not sure if it will GMTI. Time will tell. Not holding out a lot of hope and expecting to drop the whole thing down.

I am sure you can do it.


:pray: Thanks for the vote of confidence. Iโ€™ll certainly start out with that mindset!

I did the Focus Exercise before I started, and just assumed I could do it.

If you want to know what I thought about it you can look at my post here: ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ NEW VIDEO: The Model is LIVE! ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ - #14 by Heretic

I have no doubt you will do itโ€”because Sufferlandrians donโ€™t stop until they do.
