For all Comrades, south Africa 2013 runners & those wanting to know more
Congratulations Hans. That's a huge improvement! Pity about the 15 secs...
Well done chaps on all the weekends marathons. Particularly to Hans for making a big imporvement in your time.
Great stuff over the weekend guys - spectacular performance in particular by Hans, great PB.
Great times you lot and some that I could only dream of !
I put my time in obtained earlier in year of 3.51 so am D seeding I think. Am glad I was able to as am getting slower as the year progresses.
Did Clarendon at the weekend and what a tough route. Lovely run but no pressure to perform so that was good.
Am hoping for a sub 4 at Abingdon but will see. It will be my 14th marathon this year and I am getting slower. Roll on last marathon of the year at Portsmouth so can then knuckle down to some 'proper' training and stop with all the multi marathon running which is exhausting....but fun !
Hooray! My 2012 badge has arrived!
Hotels for the up run - it looks like there are plenty of choices within an easy walk from the start, which the Hilton (I think) isn't. Any thoughts / ideas ?
Good luck with anyone running this weekend. I just have 5 mile XC Sat and Sun with the club, which is hopefully gentle enough between Chester and a much flatter but less interesting Yarmouth.
Kevin - I haven't looked at hotels yet as we haven't decided if the whole family is coming or not. They might stay up in the North West Province. If they come I might stay at the same place as 2012 which would be about 3km from the start. If I'm coming by myself it will be a bit more basic and hopefully closer to the start
I'm in the tapering phase now before Abingdon mara on 21st October
Kevin, Hilton is quite "walkable" I think it is probably around a 1km walk to the back of the start crowd... I usually walk from the City Lodge (via the Hilton where a lot of runners meet up) and its quite a sociable wander down (for most) to the start...
Liverpool marathon for me on Sunday - time to find out what sort of fitness level I'm at following a summer of @rseing around...
after 2 months of no running, finally got the go ahead from the physio to make a slow start again .. 12kms later everything hurt but for all the right reasons!! will try again tomorrow, but so far the hamstring seems to be holding up. Will start training now for a steady run at Portsmouth and take it from there!!
Getting mighty hot here in Luanda ... back to early morning runs to avoid the heat.
Thanks SD. Google maps looked like quite a way, so I will take another look. Good luck in Liverpool.
Hilton booked plus flights £750 with Emirates just wanted to get it done. Flying out Wed
P47 - Great news to hear you are back running. I know from my own injury hammered year how wonderful it feels to enjoy such a simple thing as just being able to go out the door and run when you haven't been able to do it for so long.
Abingdon next Sunday. Should be sub 3 after some encouraging progress on the road back from injury.
