TRI247 Workout Series #53 – Lucy Gossage’s New Year Set

Wednesday, 2nd January 7.00pm UK time on Zwift


After a week’s break over the festive period, we are very pleased to announce that the weekly TRI247 Workout Series on Zwift will kick-off 2019 tonight, lead by the 13-time iron-distance champion, Lucy Gossage.

Winner in 2018 of IRONMAN races in Lanzarote, UK (Bolton) and Wales (Tenby), the Duracell Bunny ended here year and, perhaps, her professional triathlon career by winning the Patagonman Xtreme Triathlon in Chile. An ambassador for Wattbike, Lucy is a big fan of indoor training and will lead tonight’s session with her New Year Set.

The New Year Set

If you’ve over-indulged over the festive period, this session should hopefully start to get you back on track to kick off 2019.

The main set tonights comprises of 3 sets of 10 minutes, with each 10 minute block increasing in intensity, comprised of the following:

4:30 at 85% FTP (Zone3)
3:30 at 95% FTP (Zone4)
1:30 at 110% FTP (Zone5)
0:30 at 120% FTP (Zone6)

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.00pm UK time, Wednesday 2nd January 2019. 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.
