AGE: 34; EVENT: Gold Coast Airport Marathon 2016 (GCAM2016); DATE: 3 July 2016; TIME: 3:32:46 (PB by 16:56, previous 3:49:42 @GCAM2015); PLACING: 22/354 (30-34)- Amy decided to target a Boston Marathon qualifying time at the 2016 Gold Coast Marathon after a sub-4 hour effort at the same event in 2015. A recommendation by Keith Bateman introduced her to SWEAT running with Sean Williams. After specifying her goals, Sean provided her a program consisting of quick sprint intervals, progressive tempo runs, 10K races and long runs that specifically targeted her race goal at the Gold Coast. On race day, all the workouts and training paid off, and everything magically fell into place! The result was a BQ for Amy by more than 7 minutes. Post-race, Sean set out a program that aims at solid recovery without comprising on fitness level. There are obviously room for improvement in future races, but for now, Boston Marathon awaits her in 2017.
