Date: August 8th, 2015
Once again, Tahoe locals Colleen Conners-Pace and Joe Pace are offering a STRESS FREE Training Day so that all you need to do is to basically show up with your wetsuit, bike and running shoes. We will take care of the rest. The idea behind this camp is for the athlete to practice their race day strategy/plan at altitude and become familiar with the actual course. This will include pace, nutrition, clothing and gear. Racing at high altitude is very much different than racing at low altitude and it would behoove those to test the waters so to speak in more ways than one prior to race day. The focus is to rehearse your race day strategy, by practicing it in a simulated race fashion on half the IRONMAN course.
The day which will consist of a swim clinic/swim with Boost Swimming
The swim clinic takes place at the IMLT swim venue. This is a great opportunity to get a few tips from Jeff Pearson, an excellent swim coach, on swimming in cold water, shallow water and this will give you an opportunity to swim in a pack simulating a race scenerio.
There will be a sag on the bike with one bike aid other than the sag which will be a roving aid as well and then a T2 from bike to run at Squaw Valley with one aid on the run. Aid will be Heed and Hammer gels. We will have light snacks at “T2″ and Finish. The training day is only for half the distance of the full, if you are interested in riding the full 112 you will be on your own for the second loop. We will also provide a shuttle from the Finish (Squaw) back to Kings Beach (Swim venue).
• 1.5 hr Boost Swim Clinic
