Here are the details of Wednesday’s TRI247 Workout Series group session on Zwift.

With the 27th edition of the iconic Club Relays Championship taking place this weekend at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham, this is a brand new session inspired by an event which we here at TRI247 look forward to every year. It may be organised chaos – but it’s brilliant.

Club Relays Zwift

The session…

The workout includes four sets; within each one you increase the effort from Tempo, through to Threshold and then (briefly) into VO2 Max, before a short recovery. Repeat four times – one each to represent each team member in the virtual relay team!

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 22nd August 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.
