Saturday Swim Session: GCN’s Sub-Hour Ironman Swim Session #3

Completing the Ironman Swim in under 60 minutes is a significant achievement. Consistent pacing and sustained effort is the key to achieving this goal. This is a great session for triathletes and open water swimmers to do to build their sustained speed.

Friday Fartlek Run: Zwift Academy Tri 2020 Progressive Tempo

Tempo is a very important pace to include within a workout to build your ability to sustain pace. Within this workout, you increase the pace with each rep compared to the previous rep, running faster and faster as the workout progresses. All runners (and triathletes) can benefit from this higher intensity of training, especially athletes with events from 10km out to a marathon.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: Nate Wilson’s Sub-Threshold/Sweet Spot Workout #1

Sweet Spot is an intensity that is just below your Functional Threshold Power (FTP). At this intensity you get the physiological benefits without the level of the fatigue of higher intensity sessions. This session is great for all cyclists including triathletes and mountain bikers.

Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: VO2max Long Interval Sandwiches

Research shows that intervals with a range of intensities develop greater training benefits. This session has intervals at Level V initially before settling at Level IV to generate these benefits. This session is great for all cyclists including triathletes and mountain bikers.
