NEW IRONMAN PR – 10:21:47 – This course was so much more difficult than Ironman Arizona where Keith posted a 10:27:57.
CRUSHED THE MARATHON – 3:36. This marathon time was only 45 second slower than his all time best stand alone marathon at Surf City.
The Fitness Coaching training philosophy has always been quality over quantity, but this build up to IMMT for Keith took the low volume approach to the extreme limits. In fact Keith logged 8.5 -9.5 hours of training per week in the five month build up to IMMT. He had one 12 hour week.
Keith’s training sessions were very targeted and calculated to make up for the lack of volume. Keith was a believer when I told him that the lower volume could get him across the finish line with some solid speed. In the words of Keith after the Ironman, “pushing into painful threshold workouts builds character and a lot more speed. I’m a believer!”
Good work Keith!!!!
