Like a yoyo, this workout will take us through 3 sets of up and down endurance efforts with intervals ranging from 60-100% FTP. Intervals will range from 30 seconds to 2 minutes in the duration of different sets. ABOUT THE COACH Eric Kahl has been competing in triathlons and endurance sports since the mid 90’s and coaching endurance athletes for 2 decades. Eric has raced in all types of endurance events, from sprint distance to multiple IRONMAN events and multi-day Adventure races. In addition to his extensive racing experience, Eric has coached hundreds of athletes from first-timers to multiple World Championship qualifiers in both 70.3 and 140.6 distances. HELPFUL HINT We highly recommend rides complete an FTP tests on a regular basis, as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
ABOUT GROUP WORKOUTS 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.
FAQ: What do the coloured areas overlapping the elevation profile mean?
Segments along the route are coloured along the height profile. Climbs are indicated with red, sprints with green and other segments (e.g. laps or timed segments) with blue.
FAQ: What do the climb categories , , , and mean?
Climbs are categorized based on how tough they are, which depends both on the climb's length and its average incline. The toughest climbs are rated (HC comes from Hors Catégorie, which is French for beyond categorization). Less tough climbs are rated as category , less tough climbs than those are rated as , and onwards with and . Any climb less tough than category four does not get a rating.
FAQ: How can I ride/run on an event only route?
By joining an event you can get into event only worlds and routes. Don't want to join an event or don't see an event with your desired world/route? Use the Zwift Companion app to create a meetup or (for even more choice of worlds and routes) create a club and then an event.
