This camp is again ideally timed for people to use as a key block of training going into their early IM races or to use it as a Volume block of training for their latter IM races.
In 2010 and 2015 I used this camp as a key period in my preparation for the 2010 and 2015 Lanzarote IM, it really was the perfect timing and I know helped me tremendously to prepare for the race and to go on to qualify for Hawaii.
There really is no minimum standard required but it is asked that athletes are realistic to there abilities as the training will be hard and the volume high.
So if you want to escape the worst of the winter at benefit from a key block of training then join me and my team along with the others on the camp for this high volume but very relaxed and informal training camp.
Little emphasis will be placed onto technique and no time spent in the lecture room. However every session will be planned out and explained well in advance so that everyone goes into every session with clear goals and expectations. There will also be plenty of time for informal chat over coffee!
The camp aims
- For a high volume week of training
- An extra emphasis on the cycling (as this is the hardest one to train for in the Uk winter)
- To include key race specific Ironman conditioning sessions
- To work on the Mental toughness required for Ironman
- To consider good recovery
- To work on race nutrition and hydration
