Endurance Corner Camps - Spring 2008

Endurance Corner Camps:

Over the past few years, one of the things that helped separate me from others in my age group has been the camps I have participated in with Gordo. Some of them have been difficult to get to (New Zealand, Australia, etc). Some of them have been pretty difficult! Thatís why they were named ďEpic CampĒ. Now, there is something different available to us.

Itís my pleasure to recommend to my clients and training pals Endurance Cornerís training camps in Tucson. There are two well balanced camps scheduled for the Spring of 2008 and they will be appropriate for a range of abilities. You don't need to be a Rockstar to do these camps. Mid-pack athletes will find great value training alongside Gordo, Dr. J and the crew. Take it from me, you will be surprised at how 'slow' g-man trains the majority of the time. There will be ample opportunities to be strong as well. Itís difficult for me to quantify the value campers will get from training alongside Gordo at these camps. In my experience, each time I have made the effort to get to a camp, I came away with much more than I anticipated. There is more to be had than swim, bike and run fitness but you will get an important boost in early season fitness. No doubt.

I am in the process of solidifying the first five months of my personal training and racing in 2008. The March and April camps are something I hope to do. If anyone wants more info on training with Gordo and Endurance Corner at these Tucson spring camps then contact mat@endurancecorner.com These camps will sell out.


FURTHER NOTES and PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS: these camps are 5 star Ė highly organized. There are no loose ends.

The March camp will have balanced training in all three disciplines. A Race simulation ride will be featured on March 23rd to help assimilate the pacing required to have a successful Ironman. For athletes racing Ironman Arizona, the remainder of training and the simulation session can be scheduled with your needs in mind.

The April camp will have a larger bike focus, with the faster athletes training up to 500 miles, in addition to the swim and run sessions.

Optional physiological testing will be available prior to the week for those interested. Those undergoing testing will be provided complimentary one-on-one assessment of test results by the coaches during the camp. The camp schedule has been set up to ensure plenty of interaction between coaches and athletes.

The camps are all-inclusive aside from transportation to and from Tucson and the supplemental testing. This includes airport transfers, all meals, SAG, nutrition, 2 massages, and camp schwag. Meals will be cooked by our staff (full-time chef experience) in a central venue with a kitchen for daily meetings and down time.

Housing will be double occupancy in a Days Inn with free wireless internet. Single occupancy is available as an optional upgrade.

Each camp will likely have two riding groups, with daily maps, and a sag vehicle. This vehicle will provide sweep duties behind the last cyclist and provide nutritional support along the way when needed for longer rides.
