I did it! I finished Zwift Academy 2021!

I did it!

I mean, I had a plan for finishing but also, hey, I actually followed the plan. It’s tricky fitting Zwift Academy in between other social rides and also team racing events. This year I cut out our Monday and Friday night races and stuck with the Tuesday and Thursday team events. That helped but still, coming up to the deadline, I struggled. The workouts are hard and most definitely Not Fun. In general I do better doing hard things like that in a team environment.

The chat running alongside today’s virtual ride in Zwift said, “Hello fellow procrastinators!”

Zwift Academy 2021 ends tomorrow. And today I completed the Finish Line ride after all the workouts and recovery rides.

What’s the Finish Line ride? From the FAQ: “A Zwift Academy Finish Line ride is specifically designed to capture your gains over the duration of the Academy. It is set up identically to the Baseline Ride and will measure the exact same segments you started the Academy with. Riders are challenged to get PR’s on the segments and ride easy between the segments.”

And, not surprisingly, I got faster! On all three test segments.

The biggest improvement was on the Volcano KOM. Since long hills are my nemesis, I was very happy with this.

Thanks Sarah for cheering me on!
