Great sat AM run 8.5 m at 8:45 pace. Felt so comfortable really happy with running at moment. Summer break has definitely helped. Off to work soon on the late shift, I will b buzzing whilst everyone else will b miserable. The joys of being a runner

Hi all, great to read comments. Toby 3 I know what u mean about lost mo Jo. I had a great spring and completed an ultra beg of summer. Then had a lazy summer with max 2 runs per week and max length 6m. However got right back into it sept and now feel in great shape. Running 3times a week and gym min 2 times a week. Really mixing it up from bike at gym (spinning classes and bike on my own for hill training) to 6m runs easy/hard and LSR at weekends. May be an easy summer is what was needed. Really looking forward to Brighton next yr as I'm planning on celebrating my 50th yr by entering HM and marathons that I have not done before except my favourite which is Brighton (my 4th time)
I'm also hoping for 3:30 (prev best 3:33) if all goes ok.
Tillstar good luck with job hunting does it mean u have lots of spare time at moment for running?
Keep up the posts very motivated by them.
I have got Stevenage HM nov2nd not the most scenic however trying to fit in a HM race every month to see how MP is.
Happy running

Comrades 2015

Thanks running rodent for letting me know about this site.

Im wanting to do this and was thinking as it will be my first comrades I should do it all through a sports tour company. I know this might b more expensive however all is done for you. Or do u think it is easy enough to do by myself. I dont have a clue about which hotel (are there ones near expo/start) and what flights are needed. I need to do a lot of research. What is qualifying time and how do u show u have done it.

I look forward to reading all posts and catching up with you all.

Good 3 mile run at race pace. Going to get some faster runs at shortet distances to get ready for St Albans half in June, followed by a fun marathon in Stour.

Missed Brighton this yr due to far east holiday! However do not fear as im back next yr!

Looking forward to reading all the posts, trust u all have been getting better and better.

Completed MK on Monday and had a great running yr last yr so hoping for more of the same. Plenty of races lined up this summer/aut to keep me in shape for my favorite marathon BRIGHTON.

Well done Neil, very good debut time.

Scott- I was on for 3:30 at half way stage, I felt fine but had to slow down to prevent me stopping. My own fault not enough water in first half. 

Well done Ivor, remember only a very small percentage of people can run a marathon and u r one of them
