Hi all......did a lovely 23 miler yesterday taking on part of Steyning Stinger route then onto 3 Forts...right over to Devils Dyke and dropped down to Hove. Tough but a lovely weather day for running altho SDW was like the M1 with walkers, cyclists, horse riders and runners.

Am looking to do Richmond Park marathon on 18th May as last big run pre Comrades but am not sure if it is too close to the big day. What do you all think ?? Oh and if anyone has done the run, is it any good ??? Thx.

SD - sorry.

Alas I won't be at WT as being such a doofus, I assumed it would be good to enter on the day but not so, it is full up !! I have a local 15 miler now planned......

I think spending Saturday chilling will be the order of the day and I'd forgotten about parkrun oh and a lovely breakfast.

Erm....ignore part of my last post...Winter Tanners is NOT cancelled this year. I looked at the wrong year - it was cancelled LAST year due to snow. Phew. Such a doofus.

Windsor A - lol...that's true altho it will be dark. A lie in sounds so much better...and sensible.

SD - I was going to Winters Tanner but I see it's been cancelled !! Blooming weather.

Very interesting that some of you 'old hands' still do the bus tour. Last year was my first Comrades and am going back for the B2B fingers, legs and everything crossed. I did the bus tour last year but am now wondering if I should do it again this year ?  I arrive in Durban on the Friday so it would have to be a Saturday tour. Is it a good thing to do ?? Can we book it at the Expo on Friday for the Saturday ?? Thanks.

Windsor Andy, SD and BI - thank you so much.

BI - I have cut and pasted your write up for future mulling over. All that info is just invaluable to a newbie Downer like me. Thanks guys.

Thanks SD and everyone else...and yes...I did realise the Down is the reverse of the up but having only done the up once it's a challenge to remember. Stuff like what to wear, weather, lighting etc etc is invaluble information.

...oh and I also have dodgy calfs / achilles and am staying well away from flat long distance road runs for now.
