Day 3 of the Lanzarote Multi-Day Training Camp kicked off with volcano hill reps. This session has been on the camp for 6-years and is always a favourite.
Leaving Club La Santa we pass through La Santa village and then arrive at Subida el Picacho for the hill reps. We recommend 6 loops, some do a little less, some do a little more. Ultimately, with the warm up and warm down, most get over 16km and 500 to 700m vert. A great session.
Of course, each loop has a downhill section that allows recovery time but also the possibility to practice downhill run technique on challenging terrain.
An extended break for lunch was followed with an 8-mile/ 12-km run/walk for an overnight bivouac. This session is done in a self-sufficient manner (with the exception of tents/ water which are transported) allowing each participant to test packs, sleeping bag, clothing and food.
Tents pitched, we had a fire and beautiful calm and warm night was relished by all as they tested dehydrated meals.
Eventually bed called…
During the night, the wind came in full force making for a sleepless night for all. With most participants using pop-up or cheap tents (for convenience) it proved for some comical experiences. Sorry Liz 😉
The morning was an hilarious mess of broken tents and tired bodies. Everyone somehow seeing the funny side of the experience.
With a new day, new challenges…
More to follow!
