Sub-40 Again

This Sunday I raced in a local 10km. Since I last did one in January, and broke 40mins for the first time, I've been training for the Vancouver marathon, held on May 4. The past three weeks were the heaviest training load, with three consecutive Sunday long runs of three hours.

Lots of hills have made for interesting training and I feel much stronger. So I was pretty happy to finish this 10km in 39:55 (not only first female, but first overall hahah - it was a small race - though I had two people chase me and I was chasing one of them between about 4.5km and 8.5km of the race!

The course was relatively flat, with three minor hills, but it had lots of twists and turns and two sets of short stairs. I felt good, but not great. So I was pretty happy with my time.

Next goal is the Sunshine Coast half marathon on April 6. I am planning to race hard! My current PB is 89:16.
