SwimTrek launches Tri Training Tour in Gozo

News of a Mediterranean open-water training trip

This just in from SwimTrek…

Planning on entering a competitive Open Water or Triathlon event in 2012? Then dust off the cobwebs and stretch those rested limbs and join our pre-season Training Trip.

Together with our qualified coaches you can get race fit for your season ahead. This brand new tour for 2012 features open-water swims and coaching sessions in and around Gozo and Comino and the challenge of a 5km crossing from Gozo to Malta.

Unlike many other tri and open-water training camps, this trip is based solely in the sea. The trip has been specifically developed for those who enjoy getting up to speed, with qualified swim and triathlon coaches on hand the trip will be a great learning experience.

The week’s training kicks off with drill practice in Xlendi Bay and video analysis sessions using under water video equipment to capture technique issues. Followed by a swim in the afternoon under the dramatic Ta Cenc cliffs, which rise over 470ft above the sea.

This seven day trip also includes; race nutrition and hydration, coaching sessions to develop sighting/drafting and race starts, which is then put into practice with swims along the coast taking in both the stunning Azure Window and imposing Fungus Rock.

One of the highlights of the week for many will be the crossing from Gozo to Malta, a journey of 5km. To close the week and make use of all the learnings to take home and put into practice, the trip will continue with pacing and sprint work and have the opportunity for one-to-one training sessions and a second video analysis session to highlight training points followed by a full debrief and an ongoing training plan.
