TRI247 Workout Series: Helen Jenkins - Breakaway!
Group Workout
Every Wednesday at 7:05pm UK-time, 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 typically about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule.


Tonight we are thrilled to welcome two-time ITU Triathlon World Champion, Helen Jenkins, as guest ride leader. Helen has won multiple events in the World Triathlon Series and also represented Great Britain at three Olympic Games.

This workout is focused around creating a breakaway and then sustaining power. It is also ideal preparation for hilly races. Focus on a comfortable cadence during the break away reps and try and aim to keep your upper body relaxed saving all your energy for the pedals.


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.
