Another very memorable week at Playitas Resort, Fuerteventura, early March 2020.
The timing of this was close to the wire with Europe rapidly developing into a travel restricted zone with the outbreak of Covid-19.
TPS welcomed 21 athletes from Europe, many again from Jersey and a real mix of standards, experience and personalities once again summed up an enjoyable week.
Several specific pool sessions in the beautiful outdoor olympic pool kept the athletes sharp. All athletes are placed in lanes by fairly strict pacing/ fitness levels.
The sea temperature this year was perfect for the odd kilometre group swim across to the village of Las Playitas and back.
The roads around the middle of Fuerteventura are perfect for group rides, some nice longish hills and places to avoid the wind aplenty for the athletes to get some solid pre-season miles into their legs.
A few run sessions close to the resort with rolling volcanic tundra and then the famous lighthouse run was a significant challenge again this year. But well worth the cold beverages at the top and then back at the resort after.
We have tentatively booked Playitas again for 6th March 2021 – further details here if you’re interested:
