The TRI247 Winter Series #5 – Train with Joe Skipper

Wednesday, 10th January 7.00pm UK time (GMT) on Zwift

Last week (read about it HERE), we kicked off 2018 in the TRI247 Winter Series on Zwift with a great session with the reigning ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Champion, Lionel Sanders.

Our next workout on 10th January will be hosted by the ETU Long Distance Triathlon European Champion, Joe Skipper (www.joeskipper.co.uk).

Joe hosted our second Zwift Group Workout session on 20th December – but unfortunately a technical set up issue meant that the workout file hadn’t loaded properly. Joe and team did a great job of “keep calm and carry on!”, and we did get the session done, but we promised that we would give you all a chance to do the ‘Burner’ session properly in the New Year. Now is your opportunity to do just that.

As with our other events (Lucy Charles | Lucy Gossage | Lionel Sanders), we will publish the Zwift Custom Workout file for Joe’s session after the event, so that you can also do the session in your own time.

Joe Skipper Burner Session Zwift

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 10th January 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 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.
