First things first - Badbark ! Tremendous achievement and honour, particularly after your tribulations - many congratulations.
Great comeback, Rennur - there's often a doubt when returning from injury, so well done. I'm (admiringly) envious of the WAVA score, PMJ - nice one ! Jools - how is the taper going? Gul - you referred to starting training again in November - found a target yet?
Great reporting moof/VTr - and fine racing for differing reasons - moof winning the "mental & physical battle", VTr cranking up the pace in the final miles ! PB's just reward for each.
Great report by Poacher too - one more mara/ultra and you have one per mile of Comrades . . . . . .
starting to ease back to normal here - 35 miles last week. 7 very wet and windy ones this morn.
Good luck and the usual exhortations to the marathoners . . . .
PMJ/Gul - please do the Raceway mara - surely would provide great entertainment for the rest of us - 8 laps, half mara/10K/5K going on - great scope for mayhem . . . .
Jools - any taper eccentricities going on?
3 runs here this week 6,4,5 - odd period surrounding a marathon - following months of higher miles, there's a month of easing down & recovering, with a big effort in the middle. 7:15am start tomorrow - maybe do 2 hours.
