We are back this week with our WhittleFit group rides on Zwift! The group sessions this week are a 45min tempo/threshold session on Tuesday morning and a 60min threshold session on Thursday evening. As always, these group sessions are open to everyone, not just WhittleFit athletes.....and they're totally FREE! 357786 vtdf PR image letape 1 300dee original 1593414889 8c4cd03

  • Tuesday 19th January: Tempo Tuesday (6:30am) Watopia Figure 8 Reverse course 
  • Thursday 21st January: Threshold Thursday (6:05pm) Astoria Line 8 course 

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.
