Before the flurry of events in the next month I have one last quest.....to get under 17mins for the 5km. This Saturday I have my last chance of the year (based on the current schedule, anyway) at the Run For Kathy. Last year I did 17mins 3secs for my current PR and so it is certainly a possibility on this course. I have done a bit more speed work than I had last year (just prior to IMFL) and so will give it everything.
After the race my taper starts for the Duathlon World's on Sunday Oct 21st and also for the rest of the day I will be glued to the internet watching the live stream of the Ironman World Champs from Kona. [Looking for tips for next year :-)]
