Welcome aboard Zaklawe-Outlaw.  I can't advise regarding the Ironman qualifier.  Regarding clubs, that is very important if you are going to enter as a South African runner.  It's not important for International Runners.  If you want to run as a South African runner there should be a club that can accommodate you.

Possibly.  A couple of lower mileage weeks for me.  I've done some shorter races but I'm still getting my pace back.  3rd lady at Redcar parkrun at the weekend was more due to the size of the field than me being anywhere near my best pace.

I've decided that next year I'm going to stick to Coach Lindsay's advice and not do as many marathons in the build up, with a greater focus on quality.

I think that I have 31 photos.  Not quite as many as lowrez but I clearly need to up my game as I usually give a thumbs up or similar but leave my cap and glasses on.

A friend has a Race to the Stones entry for anyone that is interested.  It is to do the event over two days.  16 July.

I started easy running in the week after Comrades as my legs were fine.  I've not got much pace at the moment but that is to be expected, both from having run Comrades and also from the injury-necessitated month of little running that preceded it.

I've got Race to the Stones coming up in mid-July.

Yes, that's the great man, PG3.

Great write-up, Mr K.

Think Marty's bus is on from 9:29.

lowrez, initially I went back for a third because I wanted to try for sub 9, after getting 9:25 and 9:20 in my first two years.  This is one of their cunning ways of tempting runners in.  This year I went because I was going to work in Mauritius in early June, and I might as well fit in another Comrades on the way.  Same again next year but it also struck me that I didn't want this years to be the last, as originally intended. There's no race like it and a lot of that is to do with the people who stand by the side of the road.

Gentle lolloping around a desert with a big backpack. Perhaps Inchanga will feel easy after that.
