Base Camp Action..

The leaves are turning brown so it must be time for Base Camps in the Lake District. These triathlon training weekends started 8 year ago as a crazy training weekend for a few friends and developed into regular Endurance Coach calendar fillers. The 2 day training camp takes place in the heart of the Lake District, on the shores of Windermere. Our forest dorm/cabin accommodation is pretty basic but an amazing location!

Friday evening includes a head torch run at 7:00pm for the super keen before the real fun starts Saturday morning with a long cycle ride through the Cumbrian countryside. Saturday afternoon includes a theory session and then swim practical to include video analysis. Following all that, there is a group meal Saturday evening in the local pub (paid on the night), followed by the Base Camp quiz!  Sunday is a relatively early startand a 1.5-2 hour steady run on trails. After lunch you have the opportunity to sit down with a coach and go through all your video clips from the previous day’s swimming..

The whole weekend costs £95 excluding the meal on Saturday evening and all abilities are welcome but you shouold be capable of cycling for 3-4 hours and runing 1.5 hours (speed not important). Dates are November 18-20, Jan 27-29, Mar 23-25. For more details GO HERE

Enjoy the winter and look forwards to 2012!!
