In short:
Course was changed at the last minute due to riots on the original route resulting in more climb but weather was wet initially, pleased with result

In full:
More work needed on pace endurance before Comrades in 7 weeks time, chicked by Rachel (again!)

In short:
Loved it! Felt strong throughout, nailed running to effort levels & hydration strategy! Focus on the process not the outcome! For anyone that doesn’t know this is a 35 mile race though it’s called a marathon!

In full:
The course was changed the day before to go up over Ou Kaapse Weg instead of Chapman’s Peak due to threat of riots at Hout Bay. Route change made for a much hillier course with a climb of 1000ft in 4.5 miles & for the masses slower anticipated finish times by 20-30 mins by the legend Bruce Fordyce. My A goal if all went to plan was sub 5 to sub 5:15 so really happy with 5:21 after the course change! Also played to my strength of strong finish - was 382nd female in first half and 237th in second half! Just got to keep it going for another 20 miles at Comrades in 7 weeks!
