I think creating a Bobs Book type thing with photos and experiences would be a fun exercise for anyone however Fido & SD would have the hints and tips to make it an interesting read for newbies and greens alike (wouldn't add Maccie D's as mandatory race nutrition)
Lowrez - almost didn't get past line 2 where you said "weekly leg massages"
I definitely consider 18mi a long run Mr K (Comrades feels a lifetime ago)
Can't seem to shake drug allegations in running/athletics these days ... they should just implement a lifetime ban from ever competing in any races again and hopefully the thought of ending your running career is enough of a deterrent.
Sadly I'm recovering much slower than expected this year, even 10kms at a moderate pace leaves me feeling like I've just survived a 20miler. Legs feel punished after every run.
I'm doing maybe 35kms a week with one fast 5km thrown in whenever I feel the urge (or obligation) to work on my speed again.
I've also recently upped my rolling and stretching regime for fear of breaking down but it honestly feels like there's residual Comrades fatigue in my legs almost 2 months later ...perhaps this is life after 40 but I'm very interested to know if anyone is still feeling any after-effects?
