The Garmin  910XT or the Fenix2 will have plenty of battery life.

Yes, those are cutoffs for the down run.

Angela 3 - cool.  I used to visit Vancouver quite a bit when my brother liced there (he's an SA Expat).  Tons of SA people.

Angela 3: where in the US are you?  it seems you might be an ex-pat SA ?

i'm not sure running any section of the course helps to prepare you better than running anywhere else. I say this because I think Comrades really is more than the sum of its parts. The fatigue, the weather, the crowd support and the camaraderie make the running an other world experience.

I use a teflon based anti-chaffe roll-on (like a deodorant) on my nipples.  Have zero chaffing issues since using it.

Richard - there is no need to be a retired runner, unless you just want to.  Looking at the advice you have given me.... you have never allowed your injury to properly heal.  You always drive yourself hard  - both in running but also biking.  What about proper recovery?  I think you can rehab completely if you really take time off.

Eggy - my speed is increasing well, which I suspect over a 10k or even a half would be very beneficial.  But on a long run I seem to be running out of steam.  I ran a 20 today (the only one I'll do) - and my goal was to keep my heart rate 135-142.  I managed that for about 14 miles or so at a pace about 45 secs slower than MP, and then my heart rate steadily climbed for about the same pace to 155 or so.  And now my legs are tired  - more tired than my long Comrades training runs (granted, they included quite a bit of walking).

I think I've learned that a training cycle that keeps the weekly mileage around 45-55, but without a long run (more than 14 or so), is maybe not the best idea I ever had.
