Our Slowtwitch Indoors events this week are globe-trotting across the virtual world. All of our run events will be taking place on the Watopia run routes of Chili Pepper, 11.1 Ocean Boulevard, That's Amore, and the 5K Loop, whereas we go to Innsbruck, New York, and Bologna for our rides.
100/100 Challenge Runs
Our 100/100 Challenge Support runs are continuing to gain steam. Keep looking for Slowman or myself on the evening support runs. Each run is scheduled for 33 minutes, ensuring you'll get at least the minimum in to satisfy your 100/100 Challenge needs.

Slowtwitch Indoors Rides
Ride of the Valkyries
Our women's only ride goes to the Innsbruckring! As always, this is a nearly no-drop ride (just make sure you keep the pedals moving at all times). Yet again, it's another music theme for the workout title; What's This will have you asking yourself that question by the end of things. Also, a special reward to whomever can figure out where that reference is from.
Our other no-drop ride is taking place in New York along the Knickerbocker course. The ERG mode will help smooth out the lumpy nature of the NYC routes. Be sure to have an updated FTP before taking on this week's workout: Hold On is not for the faint of heart (or improperly calibrated).
Rise & Grind
Bring the climbing legs: we're going to Bologna. Our ride leaders are going to be Matt (B), Mark (C), and Shaun (D). We'll use the fence for the first trip up the climb to keep everybody together at a steady pace within the w/KG cap for the particular category, regroup, and then on the second trip take down the fence on the lead-in to our final trip up the climb. As a reminder: road bike if you want the draft, and be sure to register for the right category.
Hilly Vanilli Chase
Hilly Vanilli is also going to Innsbruck. As always, the D group will get a 5 minute head start on the C group and a 10 minute lead on the Bs. The C and D group will use the fence until they are passed by the chasing group behind. Our ride leaders request that you remember that this is not a race -- there are no winners, so registering for the appropriate category is of the utmost importance. This is also a double-drafted ride and, as such, you'll want to be sure to use a road bike on this event.
See you in Watopia!
