VO2max #1 Quadrant Analysis

This is a picture of my first proper vo2 max workout of the year as I get ready for some big races in July and August. The protocol is two sets of 6x 3:00 at 110-120% of functional threshold power with 3:00 rest between intervals and lots of rest between sets. Over the course of the next month or so I am gonna attempt to move my red blob up, to the right, and into the high cadence/high power quadrant needed for mass start track racing. For you stopwatch guys this means I'm trying to go 45-50 kph on a 94" gear for 3-8 minutes.
