Is this too advanced for me?
If you can swim one length of a swimming pool without stopping (about 25 yards), then you are okay for the swimming sessions.
If you can ride a bike, any bike (racing bike, hybrid bike, cross bike, mountain bike, TT bike, commuter bike, shopping bike, ANY bike), then you are okay for the biking sessions.
If you can run one lap around a running track (about 1/4 mile), then you are okay for the running sessions.
Is this too basic for me?
No matter how experienced you are, no matter how skilled you are, video analysis with expert feedback and expertly guided technical drills can be mind-blowing, game-changing tools for your training.
Do I have to be a triathlete?
Absolutely not. If you want to make improvements in just one of these sports, you are welcome to come along. I am currently working with lots of athletes who just want to train, improve and race in one type of sport and are not triathletes.
Of course, in the swimming sessions, we will focus primarily on front crawl, freestyle swimming, with an emphasis on endurance-oriented swimming. In the biking sessions, we will focus primarily on non-drafting riding techniques with an emphasis on endurance-oriented riding. And, in the running sessions, we will focus primarily on endurance-oriented running.
What does a typical day look like?
8:30-9am: Introductions and preparations for the day
9:15-10:30am: Video recordings of you in action, from several angles
10:45-11:45am: Detailed analysis of all the footage, biomechanical and technical fixes recommended
12-1pm: Lunch break, local spots recommended, or bring your own, as you like
1-2:15pm: Technical drills addressing issues from the morning, more video recording of you in action
2:30-3:30pm: More analysis of video footage and recommendations for improvements
3:45-4:45pm: Further drills incorporated into a distance and interval training session to finish the day
5-5:30pm: Summaries, open questions, recommendations for future training
Everyone will receive a written guide to all the technical drills we did, at the end of each day.
All of your video files will be annotated and sent to you during the week following your workshop, so you can keep reviewing and reminding yourself what we did on the weekend.
