TRI247 Workout Series #173 – All Heart

Wednesday, 19th May 2021 – 7.05pm UK time on Zwift

(ZWIFT LINK >>> https://www.zwift.com/events/view/2083537)

Join us this week on Zwift for the latest edition of the Tri247 Workout Series. Free to join and open to ALL abilities, enjoy an hour of structured training with the added motivation of a virtual group training environment.

This week we are pleased to welcome Rhys Jones as ride leader for the first time. Rhys is no stranger to the Wednesday session’s however, having written many of the workouts in recent weeks, plus the 4-week Stages Power Builder Series that we held through November 2021.

If you are new to Zwift and are not sure how it all works, it’s well worth checking out our articles archive to find out more:

The session

We have another session this week compiled by Rhys Jones, who along with Marc Jenkins, is co-founder of Jinx Sport (www.JinxSport.com). A successful athlete in his own right – 7x Welsh Champion across Triathlon / Duathlon / Aquathlon – Rhys is also an established triathlon coach, with degrees in sport science and physiology.

Rhys works alongside Marc at Jinx Sport, guiding athletes including Adam Bowden and Helen Jenkins, and is also the Head Coach of Bridgend Swimming Club.

The main set this week consists of:

  • 3x 3min at 110% FTP, 3min recovery
  • 3x 2min at 115% FTP, 2min recovery
  • 3x 1min at 120% FTP, 1min recovery

While the intervals will reduce in length, the power targets will gradually increase… have you got the ‘heart’ to keep going?!

The session is suitable for ALL abilities, as every athlete will work to their individual power targets, all while working within the group workout environment on Zwift.

Free (Virtual) Kit!

Every rider who completes a TRI247 ride (including our weekly Manic Monday Time Trial), will now unlock the bespoke TRI247 kit to their Zwift garage, to wear online whenever they choose!

[TIP – It is always worth having the (free) Zwift Companion app to hand on your mobile device. Within the workout screen you can toggle your FTP by +/- 10% ‘on the fly’, which will immediately change your power targets during the session. Legs feeling heavy, can’t quite hold your power targets? It happens! Rather than can the session, how about moving your targets down 5% first, before giving up completely? Alas, the body isn’t a machine and can’t always deliver as you hope/think it should, so a bit of flexibility and not getting too obsessed with the numbers can be a good thing!

On the flipside, perhaps you are having a good day or increasing the overall training stress of the session better meets your own training goals for that day? In that case, you have the option of nudging your baseline up in the same way.]

The session is genuinely open to everyone of ALL abilities. Group workout mode works fantastically in Zwift and ensures that the power targets are tailored to YOUR level. It makes no difference if your FTP is 400 watts or 100 watts, the targets you see will be specific to you – all while being part of the on-screen group.

Joining Instructions:

The workout will begin promptly at 7.05pm UK time, Wednesday 19th May 2021. It is worth logging in 5 or 10 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.
