Once again, in mid March we welcomed a cosmopolitan, internationally-based field of athletes from the UK, Israel, Jersey, The Netherlands and Switzerland for our Winter/ Spring training camp at Playitas resort in Fuerteventura of the Canary Islands. This is a beautiful resort having excellent facilities for our Triathlon camps and again we were blessed with some lovely sunny days and hot temps (well over 20 celsius) with little cloud and not too windy.
Andy Brodziak and Nick Saunders again welcomed experienced triathlon professional Fraser Cartmell to assist. Over the space of 7 days the attendees enjoyed typically two sessions a day but on many days three.
This year we did two runs out to the Lighthouse behind Las Playitas, a beautiful but tough run; and a track session at Gran Tarajal stadium.
Swim sessions were regular through the week with both sea and pool challenging the athlete’s skills, experience and competence at swimming under time or intensity pressures.
Cycling this year was memorable for trips to the north western coast famous for surf and sights, via some obligatory mountain passes of course; but not to mention some decent coffee and/ or lunch stops.
A busy, but once again fantastic week of training for the athletes as we returned back to the UK (for most of us) to SNOW!
For 2019 Triathlon Performance Solutions we will move the March Winter Camp to Club La Santa on the island of Lanzarote. CHECK BACK for details to come soon.
