TRI247 Workout Series: The Lockdown Roller
Group Workout
Every Wednesday at 7pm 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 about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule.


This week’s session is relatively mild in effort, given that we know that many of our regulars have been ’smashing it’ elsewhere in Zwift races, virtual challenges and more in this current environment, where ‘lockdown’ is the daily lives of many. Given that, wanted to balance those high intensity efforts elsewhere, with a mostly aerobic, sustained efforts for this week’s workout.

The main set comprises of four, ten minute blocks, separated by a short recovery. Each block will comprise of three, three-minute segments that gradually increase in intensity, finishing off with a minute at FTP.


This week’s session will be lead by Lesley Levison, aka ‘Mrs Editor’, the wife of TRI247 Editor, John.

An Age-Group triathlete with a strong swim background, Lesley is typically at the front of her category in most races out of the water – but the current ‘Lockdown’ in the UK means that it has been quite a while since she has even seen a lane rope.

Lesley has really taken to cycling in recent years too, and while Zwift was always her ‘go to’ for the vast majority of her training, the current situation has just strengthened her enjoyment of using the power of Zwift as a training and racing platform. Join her on Wednesday for an hour of group training and banter!

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.
