Debra - Really pleased your feet seem to be well and truly sorted. You can now get on with the task in hand!!
Terry - sorry to hear about you being in hospital and unable to run. But do what the Doc says and get well soon
Seren - Well done on the Country to Capital. I can't imagine running that far yet. Good for nutrition and pacing strategy
Slow Duck - Good long run for you too. The heat there is a bit more like South Africa than it is here at the moment
I've booked a tour for the Friday so I can do the park run on Saturday although I've never run the day before a race before.
When people do their back to back runs do you do the longer one on the first day or the second? Comrades training plan has it 2nd but a lot seem to do it the other way round. Maybe it doesn't matter. I had a much better long run this week than 2 weeks ago despite running 3 hours in the rain and sleet
How do you work out what pace and what run/walk strategy to use on the day?
Interesting question about long runs. I have converted Lindsay parry's schedule into miles. I have down to do 2 X 31/32 mile runs but will probably just do them at home instead of as a race. I have a 6 hour race too, the day before beccas and plan to do a marathon or maybe 1 more lap (3ish) miles but apart from that I only have a 20 a 24 and a 26 mile run over the 20 miles and I'm worried it's not enough. I really think I might have bitten off more than I can chew with this race
Happy New Yea to everyone. I started off the year with a very slow 5 miler which sorted out a slight headache Going out for a 14 miler soon but coughing a lot and lost my voice so might put some walking in . It's all time on the feet.
Am also going to book all my flights in the next week or so. Having to go via Johannesburg as visiting people there on the way back and doing a few days safari in sun city
