The TRI247 Winter Series #2 – Train with Joe Skipper

Wednesday, 20th December 7.00pm UK time on Zwift

Following on from our successful train with Lucy Charles event, the next session in the TRI247 Winter Series is brought to you by uber-biker Joe Skipper.

[UPDATE – you can set yourself a reminder on Zwift here: http://zwift.com/events/view/33769]

As you would likely expect from a man with a 4:10 Ironman bike split on his C.V., it’s going to be a challenging hour! Here is an outline of the session:

Joe Skipper Zwift TRI247 Winter Series

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 20th December 2017. It is worth logging in 10 or 15 minutes before the session to make sure you are set up and ready to go.

Look for the TRI247 Winter 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.

In future weeks, we plan to get more professionals and characters from the UK triathlon community involved, so it would be fantastic to see a large turnout every Wednesday evening. After the session head over to the TRI247 Facebook page for some post ride chat.

Zwift Group Rides: TRI247 Winter 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.
