Now that our short trip to sunny Egypt has ended and May is coming to a close, the start of my Tour de Suisse 2019 is only two months away.
Although I’m back to a regular – much less
intense destructive than in 2018 – training routine, I’m still a long way from anything near my ‘normal’ form.
On average, my power numbers are 30 Watts lower than they used to be before my injuries forced me to take a 3-month break.
With the help of Pav from Direct Power Coaching, or
Spokes Fit as they are now rebranded, I successfully rebooted, following two training plans.
During that reboot, I reconnected with
Xert and I’m now using their ‘adaptive training advisor’ to get me further back on track. I’ll try and write a post on Xert in the near future.
Anyway, the apartments for the Tour de Suisse have been booked,
Chesa Bellaval in Silvaplana and Casa Nacla in Sedrun/Surrein.
Both apartments are chosen based on their strategic location, while still staying within a more or less ‘sane’ budget for the tour.
From either place, a score of cols is available for me to break my legs on…
In this post, I’m covering part 1, the week in Silvaplana.
