Ironman Training Weeks 9 & 10 – Marathon Time!

February 12, 2012

On our way to setting personal records at Surf City Marathon

Lately it has been all about my “C race,” Surf City Marathon.  (My A race is the Ironman and my B race is my half Ironman.  Yes, this is how triathletes talk.  Don’t believe me?  Watch this educational YouTube video!

Week 9 of Ironman training I set a personal record and ran 26.2 miles in 3 hours 49 minutes and 30 seconds, and week 10 I spent recovering from those 26.2 miles.  It was a great two weeks dedicated to my passion – RUNNING.  I’m thinking my next goal will be to qualify for Boston!!  But first things first.  I want to be an Ironman!

Smile! We all set personal records!
