Triple Double Hills

This morning I did my last longest week-end run, ie 3 times on DH loop and then Lake Garden for a 35km before hitting Phuket. Total time taken is 3:08:08. This week mileage is approximately 72km.

I must say I'm feeling good at the moment and much better compared to my condition 5 weeks ago.

With another 2 weeks to go, I'm into last phase of my training - tapering. Although it's the easiest phase amongst all, I always find it the most critical one as I have to be very careful not to fall sick, get injury or succumb to fatigue both physically and mentally!

Wish me luck!

that's a very impressive timing! you're good to go then! i think the DH route is well selected as the Phuket course is very hilly.

Wish you & WM all the best and enjoy your run in Phuket!

Thank you all for your well wishes. I think Phuket will be tough due to its hilly terrain and hot weather (starting at 5am local time or 6am Msian time). Anyway I will aim for a sub-4 first. If I feel good, I will try around 3:30-3:40.
