2017 Wattie Ink. Spring Training Camp prsented by Chris Bagg coaching Group: Bend, OR
For seven years we've given athletes a jumpstart on their summer fitness, while providing a communal and supportive environment.
Friday, 5/26 Through Tuesday, 5/30
$1345 for current CBCG athletes
Just like our Tucson Dream Camp, the Spring Training Camp is a five-day, four night experience: Friday, May 26th through Tuesday, May 30th . Both will push the limits of your current fitness while feeding you well, body and mind.
Camps always feature the following traits:
- Long bike rides, to the Crooked River, McKenzie Pass, or Mount Bachelor, all fully sagged and supported by vehicle.
- Pool sessions at Bend's Juniper Swim and Fitness, an outdoor 50-meter Olympic-size facility.
- Fartlek, Interval, Hill, Track, Tempo, and Long Runs in and around Bend's excellent trail system.
- Massage and support from professional soigneur Kurt Marion
- Visits, lectures, and workouts from professional triathletes. Bend is home to three Kona Top-20 racers, and we always nab a few of them for several evening appearances.
- Lectures from the CBCG coaches and outside experts on a variety of subjects: training nutrition, swim technique, mental skills, recovery practices.
- Housing in beautiful, well-appointed rental homes, provided by Bend Vacation Rentals. You will live in total comfort the whole time you're here.
- Food cooked by CBCG head coach, Chris Bagg, a former professional cook.
One thing you should know: camp is hard!
Either of the options will push you to your limits. You should be able to do the following before coming to camp:
• Swim 800-1000 yards without stopping.
• Ride 40-50 miles at a moderate pace without stopping.
• Run 5-7 miles without stopping.
The work will be volume-focused, with specific sessions that are more intensity focused. Swim sessions will be slightly more technique driven, but will incorporate more endurance training than last year, with a healthy does of open water skills and drafting practice in the pool.

All workouts are fully supported. Rides will always have at least one vehicle (two vehicles when we have both camps running concurrently), with fluid, food, mechanical support, and directions. Training nutrition will be provided to you in the character of drink mixes, bars, gels, and recovery products.
