Here are the details of Wednesday’s TRI247 Workout Series group session on Zwift. This week’s set is one of our previous favourites, The Kitchen Sink.

The Kitchen Sink session

I’ve called this session ‘The Kitchen Sink’, because it is made up by throwing a little bit of everything into the mix for the just over one hour workout. So, everything but the kitchen sink…

TRI247 Workout Series Zwift - The Kitchen Sink

After a five minute progressive warm up, first up are some short/sharp 15 second sprints to just get the legs primed.

From there, a (hopefully..) modest start with a six minute threshold block, before a short rest and into two sets of ‘over/unders’, which you may well remember if you did the very first TRI247 Workout Series with Lucy Charles.

Follwing that, we have five, one-minute intervals at well above FTP (an element from the Lionel Sanders set!), before we then attempt to see if our steady-state triathlon legs have any speed in them, with a set of four high-intensity 15 second sprints.

From there, we finish off with five minutes of ‘Sweetspot’ work, before it is time to recover.

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 12th 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.
