Day 1 on the Lanzarote Multi-Day Training Camp and the usual sunny and warm Canaria weather deserted us with some strong winds and the occasional rain shower. It’s all about perspective though and as one runner said, “It’s considerably better than being at home or at work!”
The morning session was a 22km out and back run to the coastal town of Famara. Groups were split into 4 ability based groups:
Sondre Amdahl leading the ‘speedy runners.
Elisabet Barnes leading a mixed group of runners.
Inge Nijkamp leading group 3.
Ian Corless leading a walk / run group.
The camp is all about finding a natural balance that provides the participants with a comfortable and solid group that provides the perfect stimulus from which to progress.
A break for lunch and then the afternoon kicked off with a stunning talk by Running Reborn Coach, Shane Benzie. He discussed all the aspects, through practical demonstration, that make us better runners.
Groups were then split into 2.
Group 1 went to the run track with Shane for a practical workshop. Shane individually filmed runner and gave guidance on improving technique.
Group 2 had an easy 8km run.
As always, the evening RnR process is all about getting together for a social drink and evening meal.
It was a great start to the 2019 camp!
