Iam new to xert and thinking how to use xata workout recommendation. I live in a hilly location, so it would be hard to impossible to execute smart workouts (having recovery interval while riding up hill). I was thinking that I could re-create Xert workout, that intervals could be activated by lap button (it garmin workout creator allows). But I came to conclusion, that the best might be just follow XATA recommendation (focus or I can say intensity and total XSS) without structured workout. Please correct me if my conclusion is wrong. To be sure, that I got it correctly (read glossary, went through forum and listened to podcasts -13too), I have a few questions:
1-xata will recommend me focus (which is intensity, not duration), then follow target interval (which are Watts I could be at, with max duration I can sustain). How long should I be at this target Watts - as long as possible (I read that its estimated of the power target I should be looking to maintain during intervals), so there is really no duration? And when being in recovery interval, there is no interval either?
2-is any range/zone/ around this target interval e.g.±10W ? I know that it works with contribution ratio, so it can calculated my other effort too.
3-app Focus and strain for garmin will show my focus for whole training, but I am thinking, is not more efficient and perhaps easier to follow just target Watts(focus) instead of follow this datafield showing ultimate result (focus)of my ride? I am able to see on website after ride is uploaded anyway.
As I was searching all possible info about this, I would welcome straight answers, instead of linking me to read some glossary, which I surely already did. Thank you
