I'm back in the UK, after a work trip to Mauritius, post-Comrades. I had a good Comrades, about an hour slower than I would have liked, going in to the run, but good enough on the day. I knew early on that it was not going to be sub 9 as my heart rate was high enough even walking up the hills and it wasn't going to be a PB either, and sub 10 gave me something to aim for in the last miles. 9:59:31, so I managed that.
I wasn't going to come back for another, I was going to do Two Oceans instead, but the aim is now to do both. I'm going back to Mauritius for work next year, probably in early June, so I might as well have another go at Comrades on the way there. Do we have a 2016 thread yet?
Good to meet so many from this forum and great to see that in "the year of the crock" so many came back with medals.
