FREE Zwift Custom Workout Plan – John Levison’s ‘A bit of speed too…’
As part of the TRI247 Workout Series on Zwift we now have available from last night (25th July), the ‘A bit of speed too…‘ custom workout file used and set by TRI247 Editor, John Levison, for the latest group workout.
You can also find links to the files of all of our previous sessions below too.
Well, this one turned out to be a cracker of a session! Among the athletes joining us was recent ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships Silver medallist, Nicole Walters. Glad you enjoyed it Nicole!

The aim of this ‘A bit of speed too…” session was to mix some ‘traditional’ triathlon-style, sweet-spot / threshold intervals and efforts with some short, but much higher power reps to take us out of our normal steady-state ‘comfort’ zone, but doing so with some fatigue built in first.
The power outputs are not extreme in any road race sprint sense (150% FTP for 30seconds, 180% FTP for 15 seconds), but perhaps wake up a few fast twitch fibres that may have been a little dormant!
Given the recent weather (in the UK at least), combined with the cycling efforts, certainly a session to generate some sweat – but in a good way.
Details of next week’s session will be released very soon.
Join us every Wednesday night at 7pm, UK-time for a different triathlon-focussed workout (typically of around one hour), set and lead by a special guest.
You can download the file here (and check out the installation instructions below):

For details on how to add workout files to Zwift:
The .ZWO file stands for a Zwift Work-Out file. When someone creates a custom workout (whether it be you, a friend, or a coach), Zwift generates a .ZWO file that contains the entire workout. You can share it with your friends or other Zwifters – or add their workouts to your device – by following the steps below.
PC / Mac
Go to your Documents\Zwift\Workouts folder, find the “.zwo” file, and send it to your friend. Any .zwo files you move to your Documents\Zwift\Workouts folder will be added to your custom workouts menu the next time you launch the game.
In order to add custom workouts to iOS, you need to also have a computer with iTunes installed. It’s not currently possible to create custom workouts on iOS (as of 01/2017).
- Plug your device into your computer and open up iTunes.
- Click on your device in iTunes, then click “Apps” and scroll down to the “File Sharing” section.
- You should see Zwift listed, and it should have a “Zwift” folder. Click that, click “Save To,” and save it to a location of your choice.
- Find the saved Zwift folder, and copy all the workouts you want into the Zwift/Workouts folder
- Go back to iTunes, click “Add,” and choose the Zwift folder with the new workout files. You’ll want to “replace” the folder on the device with your newly modified folder.
- Click “Sync” to save the changes to the device.
When you start Zwift, they will show up in your Custom Workouts section at the bottom of the available Workouts.
