PR, Bitches!


Full race report to come, but I dropped 13 minutes from my half-iron PR.

And this course was WAY harder and hillier than my PR course or the flat, Ironman Cozumel course.

And my PR was set when I was 40. I am now 43.

And with the exception of about 8 miles at the end of the bike where I pushed a little harder, I was keeping Ironman heart rates all the way through.

Current Ironman pace at 43 years of age on a hard course = 13 minutes faster than old half-iron PR at 40 years of age.

**blink**

Coach Kris is a freakin' genius, riding with Coach Liz will make you fast, and Phil Shama will pimp your ride like no other.

I think I am seeing the light of possible at the end of this training tunnel.

Thank you for the plug that riding with me will make someone a faster rider. I would have loved to have been there, but I wanted to save some money to swim with the dolphins in Cozumel after the race.

Congratulations on the PR! That is huge and I know how good it feels to knock down a barrier like that and have everything all come together.

On to next week's training!
