I don't see that you shouldn't be able to, no. A lot of Base I is sweet spot work so should all be manageable. I think it was more a question of just how much I had left at the end that meant I was working to a lower level than I should.
As Mike rightly pointed out, my HR was never really stretched and, having re-tested, 260 was definitely too low an FTP figure to be using those rides to their maximum potential.

It certainly made me work, but some of that is probably due to it being the first ride at the new FTP. It is quite a mentally challenging workout IMO as 10 minutes of steady effort right on FT is bad enough, but to then only get two minutes recovery before the next means I did find myself needing to have a quiet word with myself about how hard it was if you see what I mean?
I certainly knew I'd done it by the time I had finished and the legs are tired this morning.

How come? Under the weather, or the legs just not wanting to play ball?
