I don't know how many of you have heard about theSavageman triathlon, but it is hard, well, it's very hard and then, well, it gets harder. However, it's set in a beautiful area and Chad and some of our other friends have been traveling to the Deep Creek area to train for years. It's a wonderful chance to swim in open water, learn in a classroom / lecture setting about topics such as nutrition, season planning and heart rate training all while getting information specific to you and your mechanics that will help making you a better athlete in 2012 and beyond.
You can read more about the camp schedule and details HERE. We all realize this is the weekend before Eagleman so many people will be training / tapering for that race. In fact, I will be doing that race as well, so there will be a shorter "tapering" group lead by yours truly on the group rides in the 25-30 mile range at a very reasonable pace.
If you are attempting Savageman this year, this is the perfect opportunity to see the course and ride it with some seasoned veterans in the sport who can answer questions for you about pacing etc. We will provide sag support for all the rides and will have an awesome bike mechanic (my friend Garvin!) from Top Gear bicycle shop with us during the duration of the camp checking bike fits, teaching how to properly fit a bike, change a flat and help with any needed repairs / aid stations etc.
You don't have to be a seasoned triathlete of 5+ years, nor do you need to be a beginner. Everyone will get something out of this camp and understand more about their own physiology and how to evolve as a triathlete to make better, training, racing and nutrition choices when they leave. It's not about training harder people, it's about training smarter.
We would love to have you! Make sure you sign up before January 31st because you can get the early bird rate! Let me know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org!
