I’ve been using the Xert for about eight weeks now and still trying to understand the Training Advisor.
I’m about half way through my Build phase on my way to the main event in October. I’m set as a Pursuiter rider type. I"m at 3 stars and a Tired status. The part that isn’t making sense for me is the Focus Type and Focus duration. I’m getting recommendations of Endurance and 3 hours. With 6 weeks until my event with a Pursuiter rider type I would expect the Focus metrics to start to shift towards shorter efforts. The duration has been pretty consistent for some time now around 3 hours for a number of weeks. 3hour workouts are not going to put me in an optimal condition for my events which range from a 25 minute points race to a 4 and a half minute team pursuit.
How do I start to push the platform towards a more targeted workouts that are more appropriate for the type of event I am working towards? The workouts I’m doing are focused on VO2 and tabata sessions for the next few weeks before starting into a peak period - essentially ignoring the recommendations.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
