Hi all, I’ve been using Xert for a month now and do like it although I am sometimes confused about what it makes me do.
Anyway, I’m 58 years old, 1.83 m tall and weight 81kg. Realistically, I might be able to get that down to 78kg, but not much lower. Here’s my fitness ranking (BTW I’d prefer a 55-59 bracket as the difference between 50 and 59 is huge).
I don’t ride any competitions except for the 4 day ‘mountain trip’ in August with my cycling club. On that trip we ride roughly 100k per day with more then 2000m of climbing or more. We only race on 1 mountain a day and the climbs are usually around 10k. We’re classified on our total time for those 4 climbs. My only ambition is to do as well as possible in that ranking. So I should be able to handle 4 consecutive days with 100k rides with a lot of climbing without tiring too much and still be able to go all out on 1 climb per day. I can go quite deep for a decent amount of time but I do not have the build to be a really strong climber.
Any suggestions on how to use Xert for the best results? I have till August, so plenty of time for a good plan.
