TRI247 Workout Series: A Bit Of Speed Too
Group Workout

Every Wednesday at 7pm GMT, Tri247 present a triathlon focused workout brought to you by a guest 'coach.' This will include sessions by pro triathletes, coaches and notable characters associated with the sport. The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule over the entire season.


As triathletes we typically aren't the best at anything significantly above threshold / FTP effort. Steady state, consistent and controlled efforts are our game!

In this session we'll try to address that a little, by including a series of short (but still well above our typical FTP power!) sprints, each coming after a short block of more conventional threshold efforts. The aim here is to develop some top end power while fatigued,

I can't promise to turn you into a 'sprinter,' but we'll find some fast twitch in you somewhere!

This week's session has been set and will be lead by TRI247 Editor, John Levison.

A multiple Ironman finisher 'back in the day,' he's more likely to be found at events these days either commentating, interviewing or reporting than racing. That said, he still likes to train when he can and Zwift has become his 'go to' training tool over the past year.


Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.


We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
