As you know (because I’ve been talking about it…!), I’m training for my first Ironman. I still can’t believe I’ve gone from a “I’m going to finally do a sprint triathlon by the time I turn 40!” person to training for my first full Ironman. Well, I guess I can – I’ve always wanted to do this – I just needed to figure out how to fit the training into my life. But here we are – training is rolling along and I’m trying to be as well-prepared as possible. So as part of the Ironman training experience, I’m headed up to Lake Placid in June for Ironman Lake Placid Training Camp.
I’m super excited for the chance to train on the course with others, and learn from the coaches about the course, nutrition, and strategies to have a great race day. The camp is geared for both the full Ironman and the new 70.3 race.
The camp is June 23-26 and it’s run by my coach Bob from South Shore Tri Coach, whom I got to know when I was up in Lake Placid this summer volunteering, cheering, and training. I met a lot of South Shore Tri Coach athletes that summer and also at Ironman 70.3 Atlantic City this fall – great group!
I think it’s going to be a great way to get prepared and talk about race-day strategy. Then I’ll have a month to really focus in on race day and absorb what I leared at training camp.
I thought I’d share the opportunity and see if you want to join me, since I hear the camp slots are filling up.
I’m hoping it gives me the confidence for race day – putting together all the pieces of the Ironman training puzzle together at training camp that I’ll have been working so hard at for months. Of course I’ll share all about my experience during after the training camp, but if you want to join me – click here:
