Hi ReikiRabbit, my plan for 26th is to start at Cutty Sark, getting there early, and staying until the last of the people I'm watching out for pass. Then walking through the tunnel, and seeing people there (can't recall exactly, think it's about mile 17,) then jumping on a tube, bit of a walk and seeing the slower ones that I'm following again about a mile from the finish....... Did this last year, and it seemed to work well.
I haven't visited the forum for a while as running and working seems to be taking up all my time at the moment, but having done a long run this morning, this afternoon is perfect for lounging around and catching up with what everyone has been doing.
soups - great to see the recovery is going well
good luck to everyone racing this weekend.
Could you add me to the race list, I'm doing Grove HM on 29th Mar and Manchester Marathon on 19th April. Will be going to watch VLM, should be a great day out supporting forumites and club mates !
Zuluboy...I have the same watch, but run slower than you, so not expecting it too last through comrades. manual lists a few things for saving battery life.... Have it in smart recording mode, switch of wifi and blue tooth. Guess I should try this and see if it makes an obvious difference. Not decided what I'll do on the day..... Possibly have an old or borrowed gps watch to switch on when the normal one dies..... most probably I'll just wear it till it dies.
Great running Zuluboy, to recover that quickly after your first marathon is impressive. On the topic of shoes unlike many females I am not interested, I have only one pair with heels, and 2 flat pairs. But when it comes to running shoes that's a different matter I probably have about 8 pairs blocking my backdoor at the moment, I'm currently using all of them depending on event or mood. Asics kayona and Sauncony glides are my favourites for road running, I don't seem to have problems with my feet, so have run in a variety ( often influenced by what is in a sale) without any issues, but keep coming back to these, I tried hokas whilst I quite like them I dont find them more comfortable than others. I think I'll be running comrades in kayonos. I find the strava site good for keeping track of how many miles have done in various pairs!
