WHO: Fit, ambitious and elite age-groupers triathletes. Aspiring young pros. Olympic, 70.3 and Ironman.
WHAT: Base Camp lasts 8 weeks and has 3 micro-cycles of 2:1 load-recovery.
HOW: In Base Camp I we move from transition period into a more triathlon-specific training and increase the intensity of training sessions. We introduce interval runs (uphill), increase the intensity of cycling training (MMM and BCR) and swim longer intensity sets. At the same time, we reduce the general strength & conditioning training, since our strength training happens in the sport specific sessions now.
To be followed by Base Camp II with even more specific training (bricks, TT and power endurance bike and swims).
Quality of training, pacing and "technique under fatigue" development remain key success factors.
