I have ended the year on a good note. Coach Bondarchuk reduced my training volume to approximately 25 percent of its normal level this week. The extra rest has paid off. Today I threw 61 meters (200-00) with the heavy 8-kilogram (17.6-pound) hammer. That is little more than one foot off of my personal best with that weight. Add in six more months of training, a little warmer weather, and the adrenaline of competition, and hopefully some good throws will result in 2009.
