I just got back from my second training camp this year! This time I joined pro/coaches Tara Norton and Joanna Carritt for the Epic Women Training Camp in Lanzarote, Spain. It definitely was an interesting week and definitely epic! High volume training in some of the toughest conditions with crazy high winds and endless climbing. I do not think I ever put in volume like I did during the eight day camp before in my life. My totals for the week: 24km swimming, 724km biking, and 47.5km running totaling about 50hrs of training! I came into this camp nervous knowing I would be out of my league but I held my own and made new friends in the process. The camp also had a points game going on and you got points for meeting the day's camp minimum and then bonus points for extra mileage or blogging. My goal was to survive the week, become a better climber/descender on the bike, and to try to meet the camp's daily minimum. I think I achieved all three! I was not sure if I was going to be able to do all the runs but I did. It wasn't too bad but by mid camp my hamstring was feeling it. Since part of the camp was blogging, I blogged on the camp page every night. So I have decided to cut and paste my blogs to here so you have a better idea of what we did with some pics!
