TRI247 Winter Series #12 – Train with Karl Alexander

Wednesday, 28th February 7.00pm UK time (GMT) on Zwift

(ZWIFT MOBILE LINK >>> http://zwift.com/events/view/45416)

The week’s TRI247 Winter Series group workout on Zwift will be lead by Team ERDINGER Alkoholfrei athlete and regular TRI247 contributor, Karl Alexander.

Karl has been a regular feature at or near the top of many domestic events in recent years, with a particular focus on the Outlaw races from OSB Events.

Winning the Outlaw Half in Nottingham for the first time in 2015, Karl returned to Holme Pierrepont 12 months later to win what would be an epic race by just eight seconds, overtaking Simon George within sight of the finish line.

A bike crash ruled out any chances of attempting a three-peat in 2017, leaving Karl hungry and motivated for the upcoming season. The Outlaw Half is most certainly on his schedule this year!

Karl is also a previous winner of The Gauntlet at Hever Castle, has finished second at the full-distance Bastion at the same venue along with many other top results on his C.V. With a strong background in cycling before he switched to triathlon, he is normally seen moving fast through the field once he reaches T1.

Karl Alexander Zwift TRI247 Winter Series

[You can set yourself a reminder on Zwift here: http://zwift.com/events/view/45416]

(As with our other events to date (Lucy Charles | Lucy Gossage | Lionel Sanders | Joe Skipper | John Levison | Ruth Purbrook | Tim Don Reece Barclay | Paul Shanley, we will publish the Zwift Custom Workout file from the session after the event, so that you can also do the session in your own time).

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 28th February 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.

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.
