Focus Tri Race Programs

CSR offers a specific training path and Program for the Popular IRONMAN or CHALLENGE Triathlons, 70.3 and Half Ironman Events, Sprint and Olympic Races plus XTERRA Off Road Racing. 


All MultiSport races require a massive amount of endurance. The CSR program offers many opportunities to push your limits week in and out when participating in the BRONZE, SILVER or GOLD Programs.  However, if you are interested in reaching your true triathlon potential or if your goal event is greater than 6 hours, it is very important to incorporate the EPIC and Mini Camps into your training year.

In 2013, CSR offers programs that are race focussed. Although you can choose any race that fits your desires, the CSR Team will focus on the list below in the 4 categories of Ironman, 70.3, Sprint or Olympic and XTERRA. It is exciting to have a large group of teammates at these events for support and team energy.

 

Why Do CSR Athletes Do Well in All Race Distances?

Giving the perception our team is elite or not beginner friendly?

All CSR athletes work hard and try to attend all training sessions. Maximum fitness and health is achieve by strategic planning then exexution. CoachCal attends to all the scheduling, sequencing and overlapping of all the swim, bike, run, body conditioning, mini and EPIC camps to ensure maximum fitness development without sacrificing health and daily energy. However because so many independant systems need attention and development, it is best to start early in the season (November) even if your goal race is in August. For example, in November and December, the majority of workouts are designed to rebalance the body with some core strength, impact training and neurological reconditioning through speed work and the addition of balance and agility (snowshoeing, plyometrics). This period of development must not be missed and plays a large role in allowing the body to tolerate higher volumes of training in the New Year.

Each month builds on the previous month. Modifications to the training schedule and volume are made to athletes joining mid program, but to get the most value from upcoming camps, it is best to start early and make friends.

Some weeks will have more bike volume, while other weeks might have more rest. If you miss some of these sessions, not to worry, you can either receive the exact details from CoachCal or just flow into the next week. Not all athletes are capable of attending every camp or weekly training sessions. CoachCal will outline the MUST DO training sessions and help you organize your time.

If you come to most of the group sessions, you have an opportunity to speak with CoachCal at the end of the sessions. Often CoachCal will participate in the sessions or do the session before the group. This allows for a better understanding of the level of fatigue and fitness gains during the program.
