Great running at London folks. It looked like a nice day for running in the sunshine.

I had a nice race on Saturday. Bergville to Ladysmith 52km. Started out easy with the idea to run at 3:42 (sub 3hr marathon pace). Unfortunately I was feeling quite good so at 32km I decided to be silly and chase a sub 3:30 finish. Finished in 3:29 and can't believe how easy it felt. In hindsight I probably cashed in a few too many chips. 

Marty, have a great race at TO. I'm so jealous of you going to Cape Town!

Wow Slow Duck! Great pb. With that sort of marathon speed you definitely need to go for that Bill Rowan.

Douglas, great to read that good news on your return to form.

Wow, so many marathons coming up for you lot. Hope they all go great.

I've been top and then second of the MT podium in the last few weeks. Not quite in muzza's league but happy enough.

My globetrotting has now hopefully come to an end. I left the UK (again) last year when I got made redundant. Now settled in nicely to life in Durban so won't be going anywhere soon, especially with the kids starting school.

I've managed to score myself a sponsorship deal for my troubles. Nothing Rooney like but I won't have to pay for races, membership fees, kit, shoes etc anymore.

Hello All, good to see that plenty of good training is going on. I don't reckon you should worry about the date change. Can't see that happening and the CMA came out saying as much this morning.

I hope the weather in Blighty has improved from the near biblical rain you guys had for so long. Don't want to rub it in but we've had a cracker of a summer here in Durban. Almost too hot. The humidity here has made it very difficult to run, even at 8 in the evening sometimes.

I've been doing some decent training after a rubbish November and December. Well, I shouldn't call December rubbish. I did lots of mileage but it all felt like a struggle as I was working back to fitness. I've been doing some marathons SA style. Pick one that's hilly, preferably hot and make sure you don't taper. Anyway, ran a nice relaxed 2:53 at the Hillcrest Marathon a few weeks ago and then tried to run hard at the Maritzburg City Marathon on Sunday but the legs were not happy so only did 2:46 when I wanted a bit better.

The real heavy stuff starts next week. 13 weeks to go this Sunday. Doesn't sound like that long when you say it like that.

Hi folks. Long time no post. Good to see that most are in the swing of things re training. Mine is going so so. Got sick a few weeks back and have been running like a donkey since but working hard to get back in shape. 

Poacher, I have done 4 comrades with a range of times from 10:33 to 7:10 and I can assure you that it doesn't ever stop scaring the crap out of you! I'm sure more experienced campaigners than myself would agree.

For any of you who use strava, I have created a club called comrades marathon runners if you are interested to compare detailed training analysis. Cnba to paste link but I'm sure you'll find it.

Keep up the good running all.

Something to cherish Dean. Well deserved! True machine.

Good luck for Frankfurt this weekend Johnas. Go and smash it! You've done some incredible training with some seriously good racing to back it up, so now it's time to cash it all in.

I'll make a prediction for your race and say you'll do 2:35:XX

Dean, sorry to hear of your troubles. Puts trivial matters like missing target times by small margins into perspective. Hope you get some better news soon.

Dachs and Bus, well done on some good running at Abingdon. Was thinking of you guys on the day, knowing that it would be a tough day with the weather. 

Speaking of the weather, SG, looks like a serious storm must have descended on that footy game!

Interesting race tonight. 8km club league race. Some sicko decided to map out a course with over 550 feet of climbing in just under 5 miles. Not what you expect for a road race. 3rd place with pedestrian time of 28:47 but that's mostly due to the ridiculously hilly course.

I raced my last marathon in Nike flyknit racers. My favourite pair from my 15 pair collection. I thought they offered enough support and I'm a fairly large runner at 6ft 2 and 75kg. Just taped up my toes with leukotape to avoid blisters. No problem at all on the day or afterwards.
