TRI247 Workout Series: Glasgow Revisited
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 Winter.


This session is (loosely!) based upon the Strathclyde Country Park bike course used at last weeks European Triathlon Championships and also as the venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The course in North Lanarkshire is a tough (but fair) one, which rewards the strongest athletes, something that Switzerland’s Nicola Spirig proved in the Women’s Elite race. Join us for an hour of indoor cycling fun as we recreate some of the key elements of the course in this varied workout.


This week’s session is set by TRI247 Editor, John Levison. John has just returned from the ETU Triathlon European Championships of Glasgow 2018, and having spent all week on-site watching and providing commentary on all of the races, has devised a workout which is inspired by watching how the challenging Strathclyde Country Park course provided some great racing and also rewarded the strongest athletes. Feel free to use the chat function to ask him any questions about his Glasgow 2018 experiences!

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.
