Being a qualified Tri Coach Jane will help you during your stay to maximise your conditioning. Peter will show you running routes chosen for great conditioning in a short time. We provide initially guided then un-guided runs, cycle and swims. We provide bikes for you to use as part of the cost all you need to bring are your shoes, pedals and helmet. Our choice is mountain bikes best suited to the terrain (a mix of category 2 and 3 climbs and undulating roads) but also for better conditioning , testing your physique in a stunning setting, if not giving the quickest times. However should you choose to bring your own bike let us know and we will collect it with you at the airport. The setting provides for lake and sea swims as well as steep runs and rolling countryside.
Rest is as important as fuel and training. We build rest periods into each day and as part of the week. Training builds until Thursday when we enjoy a rest day ( Sea swim from the beach in the morning). An afternoon spent eating at a traditional Trabbocci over the sea followed by a trip to Vasto where you can enjoy the medieval old town, cafe's bars and boutique shops . You will need your rest ready for Friday - Race day .
All food is provided. We provide traditional Italian fare with a home cooked Italian meal at the end of each day. Our tradition is to enjoy that meal together in the olive grove for al fresco summer Italian dining. All meals have a vegetarian base with meat to follow. However any other dietary requirements please enquire before booking. All drinks are provided but alcohol is extra.
