WhittleFit group rides: week commencing 27th July 2020

 

Here are the planned WhittleFit group rides for this week! yQFke2kqgxO16uD osskAfWs0sCxprZcKCWapZMK2gE 2048x1280

  • Tuesday 28th July: Tempo Tuesday (7:15am) Royal Pump Room 8 course (group workout)
  • Thursday 30th July: Threshold Thursday (6:05pm) Innsbrucking course (group workout)
  • Sunday 2nd August: Sunday Social (8:05am) Greater London 8 course (group ride)

And here are the details of each session: 

  • Tempo Tuesday: A 60 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.
  • Sunday Social: Our weekend group rides will always be a no-drop ride, so as long as everyone keeps pedaling Zwift will keep the group together. The rides in general will be between 1.5 hours and 2.5 hours, and will vary between flat routes, undulating routes and hilly routes, so we should have something for everyone. And as the group stays together you can push as hard or as little as you like, but just to note, don't try to set a PB on the climbs or the sprints as they don’t count in Keep Everyone Together mode, but you can put in a big effort to help drag up the group!

  • Sunday Social: This weekend our group ride is a change to the normal program and we'll be joining the Virtual L'Etape de Tour and climb the epic new climb of Ven-Top (based on the mountainous Ventoux course). This is not classed as a race, but many treat it as such, so you can take what you want from this event; race it or simply ride a brand new, epic course, based on the current virtual Tour du France course. There are various rides throughout the day, we plan on joining the 7:01am ride, but if the 9:01am slot suits you better, do that. The link to sign up is HERE
