As an added bonus, you can then blast up to Penticton, BC to participate in the IronSpeed Penticton May Camp (separate cost) and finish off the week training on the Challenge Penticton course!

If numbers are large enough, other professional coaches will be added to ensure quality coaching.

 


 

PreCamp Physiological Testing with CoachBen

The test will present the proper heart rates and power to ride the Ironman Course allowing for a strong marathon after the bike.

This IronSpeed CdA camp is perfectly timed just six weeks out from race day! Familiarize yourself with the course and enjoy some concentrated training mileage to ready yourself for the big day!

This camp is open to all levels, from the beginner to the experienced. It is aimed for those competing in, or with aspirations to compete in, an Ironman distance triathlon this year or next.

Weather and training volume!

Bring all clothing for all types of weather. A few years ago it was 100 degrees, the year before we had cool rain. You never know. Either way, we will take care of you! This camp is a training camp. I take this very seriously. There is a tremendous amount of training during these 4 days. This camp is 6 weeks from your CdA IRONMAN. This is the critical time to get in a large training volume. That means that you must take advantage of good food and good rest. There are many ways to modify the training schedule to make it less, but I suggest there is no need to add to this schedule.

High Altitude Camps

At times your body needs that little extra in volume and environmental stress to push through a plateau and get to the next level in your endurance fitness. CSR offers 3 opportunities to train in the Canadian Rockies above 6500 feet and be pampered to maximize your recovery.

The setting is fantastic. Imagine snowshoeing for 4 hours only to come back to the lodge and be served hot soup and lunch. After an informal lecture, it is time to jump on the bike and do another 2-4 hours lead by CoachCal.

For the best value, you should be in good shape before these camps allowing you to participate in the slow moving long duration volume of 12 or so hours in 2.5 days at 6200 - 9000 vertical feet.


 

The maximum number of athletes is 24. CSR athletes and members have priority sign up, but a waiting list will be created for public athletes.

Consultation and Advanced Testing

Consultation Rate: $135.00 per hour plus gst (add $25.00 per 15 minutes beyond 1hr)

Sometimes people are looking for detailed information about health, fitness and personal peak performance. CoachCal offers a single consultation to discuss all burning questions you might have. These meetings are at CriticalSpeed head office (2628 19th ave SW, Calgary).

These meetings might be used to outline a nutrition plan for fat loss or recovery enhancement, evaluate a training program and insert critical missing links and even assist in the planning of a race season. CoachCal has worked with a range of clients from Cancer Survivors to Professional Athletes.

If you do not live in Calgary, these consultation can also be done via phone or skype. Make sure you arrange the appointment by emailing  CoachCal at coachcal@criticalspeed.com

Body Composition: $75.00

Determine your percent body fat and lean body mass. CoachCal has been testing all populations for over 25 years. As a bonus, you will receive a nutrition plan based on your lean body mass that will fit your goals and physical activity (45 minute Session).

Lactate Threshold Testing For Bike and Run: $150.00

Option #1: Using your own bike and set up on the Computrainer with 6 blood samples, All 8 training heart rate zones will be determined along with power output. Maximum heart rate will be determined as well. From this test, CoachCal can determine your Watts per pound ratio and give you a good indication what your ride performance can be. He has tested athletes who can ride from 4:40 to 8 hours for the Ironman Distance.

Option #2: Running on a track, you will do several 800m intervals at varying speeds. After each 800m, a blood sample will be taken to determine the internal stress. You will start at a speed slower than marathon pace and finish at your 1 mile time trial pace. A must do for any serious runner. This track protocol is superior to all treadmill tests. You are actually running rather than just keeping up with a moving belt.

Snowshoeing / Hiking

Thanks for the great day yesterday! I can barely walk and have some good bruises, but that's beside the point. I couldn't stop talking about it when I got home. I have NEVER been to the summit of anything before (without taking some sort of transportation there), never mind really done any hiking in excess of 2 hours. Maybe lacking a little confidence on the way down, but now I know for next time. Since joining Criticalspeed it's been one new challenge and experience after another. You really know how to teach people to try something and surprise themself. Thanks again, I had an awesome time! Sandy

 

Hello Team Snowshoe

(those who are intending on venturing into the winter playground)!

Welcome to the Criticalspeed snowshoe adventure season! These snowshoe outtings are quite advanced, but can be modified to meet each individual's abilities and needs. We move slow, but we get to the destination. If you are planning on competing in marathons, triathlons, adventure racing, Ironman, or ultramarathons, you should plan to attend these sessions. But not to worry, routes can be easily modified to accommodate any level of snowshoer. Do not feel intimidated. At anytime when you have had enough, you can stop, rest, wait for the group or turn back and head for home!

Our first snowshoe adventure will be in November. However, it is very important that you all are doing weights particularly strengthening the calf muscles and achilles tendons (the soft tissue that gets the most stress, tenderness and possible injury) prior to your first snowshoe outting of the season.

Training

  • Start with 2 sets of 12-15 reps (1 minutes rest between sets) in the weight room, but I would like you to be able to do 3 sets of 8 reps to failure (3 minutes rest between sets) before January 1st! So do two weeks of 2 sets of 12 then move to 3 sets of 8! While you are in there, make sure to do this for the leg press as well.
  • Begin to incorporate some stairclimbing into your program (use the stepmill, stairclimber, lifestep, whatever)...if it is not on your schedule, maybe substitute this with a run.

It is important that you are prepared for the snowshoeing this year. The duration and vertical gain will progress to accommodate most, but when we add extra weight like your backpack, it is quite a stress on the lower extremities!

Here are the snowshoeing dates! Mark your calendar. They take place on Saturdays or Sundays. You all need to sign consent forms before you leave the meeting location. This can be done at our initial meeting location. Departure is 8am. We meet at the MacDonald's across from Canada Olympic Park. Car pooling is necessary and park permits are mandatory in the National Park! Please be gracious to tip the driver for gas money. If you do not have snowshoes, gators and poles you can rent them at the University Campus Recreation or Mountain Equipment CO-OP.

If you have any comments, questions and concerns please contact me!

Group Running Programs

Turning Ordinary Runners Into Champions

Join in on the fun and come run with CSR. Our team has several group running opportunities per week. If you are looking for a group that enjoys running thoughout the year, you have found your team.


 Rock n Roll finish for CSR

You can hook up with some triathletes or marathoners of all abilities on a long social run. Or come out and challenge yourself at a group interval session coached by one of the CSR coaches. Interval training is not just for elite runners. We all must do these sessions to become better runners.

There is nothing more special than having another 15 athletes persevering through a 12 X 1 mile repeat session. Is this something you are prepared to do yourself? If not, you certainly are not reaching your potential.

Make the change, come train with a committed group that has fun but remain serious about becoming the best they can be.

Typical Training Week for Runners

Day Time Distance Location Start
Tuesday 6pm start Long Intervals Crescent Heights DownTown (Spring/Summer)
Tuesday 8pm start Track Session Mount Royal University (plus core conditioning and plyometrics)
Thursday 12noon start Short Run/Stairs YMCA Eau Claire Downtown
Saturday 9am start Long Run Mount Royal University or Location TBA for group Trail Runs
Sunday 10am start 3-6 Hours This day is reserved for fun activities such as hiking or snowshoeing.
