I’m training for a 3 stages event (~100km, ~116km, ~110km, all of them hilly) and I set the first stage as my target date on Xert, until know all is fine, it’s been a great experience for now.
I’ve been invited to a 2 days not competitive but hard (for me) event (~200km w/2000m alt, each day ) that is 2 week before my target event.
Is there a way to tell Xert adaptative training that I want to add that “B” event? So I can get advice to adjust my training that week and then rest/taper for my “A” event?
If there isn’t, how can I manage that? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance and sorry for my english (not my native language).
Great question. At the moment, Xert doesn’t allow multiple different events. We are working on some stuff that will help with multiple-event schedules in the future…
For now, there are a couple of ways to address this:
- Likely the ‘best’ option: Keep your Target Event Date for your main/A event but moderately decrease your Improvement Rate (maybe to Slow) leading into your 2-day event.
- The lesser option: Switch your Target Event to your 2-day B event. After completing the event, switch the event date back to your Main event
- Probably the lest ideal option: Switch TED to your 2-day B event. Switch to Continuous Improvement After the event is over to train into your A event (reducing IR to ‘taper’ the week before your event).
