    Join the AATC Interval Workout on Zwift from the comfort of your own pain cave!

    Thursday Evenings @ 6:30pm throughout the winter we will gather online and complete interval workouts.  It does NOT matter your ability, Zwift will keep everyone together as long as you keep pedaling.

    You will want to have your FTP setting as accurate as possible to make this workout difficult, yet possible for you to complete.  Click here for more about FTP.

    Information on joining a Zwift Event.  Click here.

    Zwift can be intimidating with all the hardware and software issues.  FEAR NOT!  It's not THAT difficult and we are in the process of scheduling a "Zwift Seminar".  Stay tuned for details.  But, if you have any Zwift questions in the mean time, hit the AATC Goole Group and ask away.

    Schedule:  The main set will consist of...

    • Jan 11   3x5 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Jan 18   3x6 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Jan 25   4x5 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      60 Min Ride
    • Feb 1     2x10 Min High Zone 3 Intervals    90 Min Ride
    • Feb 8     4x6 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      90 Min Ride
    • Feb 15   4x7 Min High Zone 3 Intervals      90 Min Ride
    • Feb 22   1x24 Min High Zone 3 Intervals    60 Min Ride

    • Apr 19   1x24 Min High Zone 3 Intervals     90 Min Ride
    • More to come....

    These intervals will should be performed near the top of zone 3 which should be your FTP.  These intervals are crucial for improving your muscular endurance and will benefit you no matter what distance you are training for.  They are perfect for an early season Half Ironman such as the Wisconsin 70.3 club race!

    Thursday Evening Bricks 

    Thursdays June Through August

    Brick workouts are a key component to every triathletes training schedule, and to no surprise the Thursday evening bricks are the staple workout of the club. We’ll meet every week, unless it’s raining, in which case, you can ride at your own risk. Here’s the info:

    When:  Thursday evenings at 6:15pm (See Below)
    Location: Forsythe School (See Maps Below)
    Distance: Bike route: 20 mile road, 12.7 mile dirt road option, & there are 3 run routes available.

    The Thursday Evening Brick workouts are structured to cater to varying abilities within the triathlon club. A phased start is used for the Brick workouts. This phased start is designed to allow the newer riders to have a head start, and ride at their own pace. The most experienced riders will be in Group 5. This also allows the group to finish the bike ride around the same time, so that folks can begin the run together. Here's how it works:

    • Group 1: Bike start at 6:15pm (<14 mph NO DROP)
    • Group 2: Bike start at 6:18PM (16 mph and under average pace)
    • Group 3: Bike start at 6:21PM (19 mph and under average pace)
    • Group 4: Bike start at 6:25PM (19 - 21 mph average pace)
    • Group 5: Bike start at 6:30PM (21 + mph average pace)

    Workout nutrition provided by Infinit Nutrtion.

    Muffins are available for a quick recovery snack provided by Afternoon Delight.

    Race Information From Ironman.com:

    In the bucolic college town of Madison, Wisconsin visitors can enjoy walks through the downtown area and the University of Wisconsin campus. State Street is a bustling small-town destination, providing a range of restaurants, shops, and galleries. The Madison Saturday farmer's market gives athletes and their supporters yet another way to enjoy this rural location with big-city culture. 

    The race will grace the shores along iconic Olin Park in beautiful Madison. Athletes will start with a 1.2 mile swim in the historic waters of Lake Monona shared by IRONMAN Wisconsin, then bike 56 miles among the endless rolling hills of Dane County, south of Madison. Finally, a picturesque 13.1 mile run along the shores of Lake Monona will bring athletes home to the finish line.

    The 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Wisconsin will offer 30 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
