Charlie4 - awesome job. I know how much fun it is, and I am sure it was well worth the trip from Aus.
Running Rodent, Jimbob - yep, about 5 or 6 weeks till Tokyo. Going ok, but had some pain on the front of my lower leg. Never had shin splints and don't think this is, but I think I might take this week off. Even though this is peak Tokyo time, I've got to remained focus on the main goal - Comrades.
Orapidrun - the doubles I am doing in training are not really Comrades focused, although I will keep doing them, and probably increasing them as the next few months go by. What I am trying is less long runs (20 milers) and more back to back medium-long runs (14-18 followed by 10-15 the next day). I'm hoping it helps as much or more than a 20 miler followed by a rest day.
