Good luck. That sounds like fun. I don't much care for the 800 and 1500 (I'd need a bike), but I have competed in the other events. Tweak your training to include the more explosive presses and dip-and-drive exercises. Of course DJ loves OHS for his throwers. And definitely get a coach for some instruction. Technique goes a long way in both events. I couldn't throw discus worth a damn, but I could put the shot well because of technique and explosiveness.
