Tonight’s Zwift Group Workout Series: Reece Barclay’s Mix Session

TRI247 Workout Series #40 – Reece Barclay’s Mix Session

Wednesday, 26th September 7.00pm UK time on Zwift


Here are the details of tonight’s TRI247 Workout Series group session on Zwift. Having had a great result at IRONMAN Italy over the weekend (read all about it HERE), it seemed like a good time to dig out the ‘Mix Session’, set by Reece Barclay that we first did in February this year, of which I wrote at the time:

“From this Editor’s viewpoint, it was one of the best of the series so far – mentally challenging, as well as physically. It was certainly one of those where the virtual group helps you get through it!”

To celebrate Reece’s breakthrough performance, what better time to give it another go?!

The session consists of three main blocks of just over/under FTP wattage – each block slightly different – before finishing off with some higher sprint efforts at the end. Highly recommended.

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 26th September 2018. It is worth logging in 10 or 15 minutes before the session to make sure you are set up and ready to go, where you will be able to warm up in the virtual ‘holding pen’.

Look for the TRI247 Workout Series event in the list on the right of the screen once you have paired your sensors. Click to JOIN and you will be taken to the start line ready to begin the workout.

Make sure you have set your FTP level correctly before you join the workout as all the intervals are based on a percentage of FTP so it is important to get that right. If in doubt, dial the FTP number down 10 or 20 watts as it is better to finish the session than to feel like it is too challenging.

If you have never used Zwift before but don’t want to miss out, head to the Zwift support page for tips on how to get the most out of your setup.

After the session head over to the TRI247 Facebook page for some post ride chat.

Zwift Group Rides: TRI247 Workout Series

The cool thing about a group workout on Zwift is that varying levels of ability can ride together in a group and all finish the session together having done the same relative effort, even if the actual watts are significantly different. It is not a race, but a shared goal to get a good session in the training log.
