In a short time you will be out in Lanzarote getting stuck into 10 days of great training and hopefully great weather. Club La Santa is such a fantastic place to train and relax. From the moment you arrive you will feel the stress of your normal busy life start to disappear, but your motivation to train will increase massively. This is helped by the perfect training environment, beautiful weather, stunning scenery and plenty of like minded people.
The Programme for the camp
- I have gone paper free so the programme for the camp will be available via the coaching platform Final Surge that I use in all my coaching.
- Shortly you will receive a coaching invitation from Final Surge (maybe check your spam folder)
- You need to follow the link and accept me as your coach – don’t worry its just for the camp 😎
- Once you have done this you should be able to see the outline plan for the camp.
- You can download the App to your mobile phone so you will have access to your training all the time
- During the camp introduction meeting I will run through how this platform works but its great, simple and free for you to use!
- Please remember that this is also a holiday so non of the training is compulsory.
- The programme set so far is just a draft and may change. Distances and durations are a bit vague as the aim is to cater for everyones needs and abilities.
Arriving at Arrecife Airport:
- To take a taxi this is easy from outside the arrivals hall and they are happy to take bikes but will charge you Approx 35€ for the taxi and 5€ / bike
- I normally rent a car one way from the airport to Club La Santa with Cabrera Medina:http://extranet.cabreramedina.com/extranet.dll/iframe?param0=EN&PARAM1=720-05M-1002 this normally costs about 35€ and gives you the option to stop on the way from the airport at Lidl to pick up cheaper supplies for the week. You pass Lidl on the way to La Santa. Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/4g6zn4xBYH42
Remember to bring:
- something warm for bike rides as the weather can change quickly and it can be cold on top of the hills. Ideally bring a gilet, light weight rain jacket, arm and leg warmers etc
- something warm for the evenings and mornings and after sessions as it can be cold.
- make sure your bike is in good working order.
- bike helmet – it is Spanish law to wear a helmet
- bike spares – inner tubes etc – you need to be self sufficient on your bike and not rely on others
- energy drinks and bars -Nutrition can be bought at Club La Santa so you can save on your luggage allowance – but is a bit more expensive.
- wetsuit – if you want to do the open water swim session.
- swim toys – I have some pull buoys and kick boards reserved at Club La Santa but if possible bring your own
- sun cream
- It is a windy Island so it is strongly advised not to have deep section wheels
