Hi guys, new subscription user here. I’ve a couple of Q’s around coming from TR:
- I’ve recently completed their sweet-spot base 1 and 2, and then got sick so have had 2 weeks off. I’d like to resume the progressions, in terms of going through build etc. My target event date is end of March next year, which puts me into pre-build in xert. Do I:
- Make an arbitrary closer event which puts build starting next week? or;
- Drag the slider under training into build? (Does this do what I think it does?), or;
- Leave as-is, set the improvement rate higher and pick more v02/anerobic/threshold workouts?
Rest - I beleive xert will look at my what I’ve done, current fatigue etc. in combination with the ‘how am I feeling’ slider under goals. Do I rely on xert to aggresively or ‘predictably’ put rest days or weeks in? Or is this more up to me to figure out from an RPE and feeling perspective? If I go into build with freshness feedback at 0 or +0, I won’t get a week straight of high intensity v02 workouts right?
Annotations - in TR I live by annotations in the calendar, I use them for carb intake, how my sleep was, RPE for a given workout etc. as this gives me an easy way to reflect on previous days, and if I had a good or bad day I can look at variables which impact that. Is there a way to do this, or something similar, in xert? Ontop of this, when I adjust the freshness feedback slider, is there a way to historically see when I adjusted it and what to? So for example if I set it to -50 for an entire week, can I go back and see this?
SMART workouts - how can you tell if a workout was modified or adjusted on the fly using the SMART system? I just completed ‘SMART - Feeling this - 60’, and comparing what targets I had to the workout in the library I think it adjusted, but there’s no easy way to tell.
edit: 5. Full name in the forum - how do I remove this?
Anyway, thanks for your time, super keen to get into this different way of training.
