I am an ironman triathlete. 4DP sets me as a pursuiter and my MAP is pretty good but FTP not so good.
I have a bit of a problem mentally (and maybe physically) sustaining longer efforts of hard intensity (FTP or above). I just seems to die off about 15 minutes into the workout and then stop and start to the end.
I think it is a pacing issue. Going off too hard etc.
What Suffererfest workouts would you recommend to teach me how to pace myself better and get in tune with my body.
Having the reduced intensities will give you slightly less benefit in regards to your power however in regards to your overall efficiency it will do wonders as get you more used to sustained efforts and in time you will be able to bring the intensities back up!
Video I would recommend are:
Butter (although below threshold, probably the best place to start with the repeated sustained efforts)
The Rookie (3 10min sustained efforts)
The Chores (could be good for you as it has short Threshold sections after the MAP efforts)
Hell Hath No Fury (2 nice long 20min chunks for you)
