WhittleFit group rides: week commencing 9th November 2020

 

The WhittleFit group workout sessions are here and so is round 2 of the Welsh Grand Tour series! Congratulations to everyone that raced the first race of the series on Saturday morning, the London course (Box Hill twice!) was tough and Saturday's TT race on the Douce France will be equally tough! As always, our training sessions are short & sharp, with a 45min session on Tuesday and a slightly easier than normal 60min session on Thursday due to the WGT race on the 14th November. We've been asked a few times lately who can join these sessions, well, they're open for all, not just WhittleFit athletes.....and they're FREE! zwift hud cycle adz 1200x675

  • Tuesday 10th November: Tempo Tuesday (6:30am) Greater London 8 course (group workout)
  • Thursday 12th November: Threshold Thursday (6:05pm) Douce France course (group workout)
And here are the details of each session: 
  • Tempo Tuesday: A 45 minute no-drop group workout where the majority of the work is a tempo effort with the occasional splash of sweetspot or threshold work. We all do the same session (written by me), but we do it at our own intensities based on our functional threshold power (FTP), and by the magic of Zwift we all stay together. These sessions are great for boosting your FTP without destroying you, so you’re able to back up these sessions with your other planned sessions if you so wish, and also, they won’t be overly detrimental to your immune system. I will send out a separate email to the people who accept the invite for this ride as I need to send out the workout file and give instructions on downloading this file and how to join the meet up (it’s slightly different to joining a normal meet up).
  • Threshold Thursday: Todays session is a 60 minute no-drop workout where we will be working on improving our functional threshold power (FTP) by working at threshold, sub-thresold and supra-threshold intensities. This is a tough session, tougher than our Tuesday session and you should go into this session slightly rested to get the full benefit. As with the Tuesday session, a separate email will be sent out to the athletes who accept the invite for this ride as a workout file needs to be downloaded.
