Hopefully I managed not to break it.  I added in Terry - great result and I guess that if you are in Pen E that makes you a Green Number?

Bike It - nice result to get under 3:30 in those circumstances.  Lots of positives.

Debra - great progress.  I did Dymchurch last year. It's nice and flat but the surface is unrelenting grey concrete.

McH - sounds like a good plan.

Good luck for Kirkstall Abbey lowrez.  I need to update the list to take me out of the November and December events - let's see if I can manage that without messing it up.

Thames Meander is in early March.

bb69 - seeding batch won't make a huge difference, not between e.g. C and D.  There would only be a short time between these batches crossing the line. I would not compromise the Comrades training in search of a quicker marathon.  It tends to be advised not to run a quick marathon after early February, as this eats into Comrades training. 

Debra - good advice from McH.  I tend to use my London place as an opportunity for a nice jolly run round.  I used Shakespeare Raceways as my Comrades qualifier last year - terribly boring running round a racetrack but it was flat and relatively quick.

John - cracking time at Frankfurt, well done and see you in Pen C.

PG3 - well done on the 17.

I ran Leicester Marathon last weekend, in spite of my sore right foot and made it round in 4:05.  I took the risk as I didn't want to miss my local marathon for another year.  The foot was fine for 16 miles then was a bit sore for the next few, as the roads and pavements were uneven and this seemed to irritate it,but the last couple of miles were fine.  Looks like the sore foot is on account of a stress fracture, though, so I'm going to be taking a break from running for a little while until it's mended.  A bit of down time will do me no harm prior to starting Comrades training.

jnr - there is an international process.  I don't recall having to state my club.

I'm in for Two Oceans as well.  2016 was going to be the year that I did Two Oceans and not Comrades but that hasn't quite worked out and I'm entered for both now.

I'm supposed to be doing my local marathon, Leicester, on Sunday but it's looking doubtful.  I have had some bother with the toes on my right foot and it's looking like rest is going to be a better idea.  The luxury of having a qualifier in the bag but, after missing this race last year, I'm wondering if I'm feted never to do this race.

Welcome aboard Lex.  I've done quite a few off road ultras as well.  Comrades doesn't have tree roots and rubble, like you get with some of those, nor any styles, but it does have cats eyes, which can be quite a hazard.

Welcome aboard Malcolm.  Hopefully your races can be added in once a nice person has done whatever they need to to fix the list that I broke.

He's a bad man, that Traviss, with his super medals and goody bags and well stocked aid stations.
