Bronze Medal: March

Bronze Training Programme: March

Feeling good? You’ve done a marathon and qualified for Comrades - but you’re now wondering how you’re going to run double that distance?

The trick will be to continue your steady development with patience. You can do another marathon or a shorter ultra (50km) in March as a TRAINING RUN. It is important not to “race” this race: if you do, you’ll struggle to recover in time for Comrades.

    Hi I am a 60 year old women living in Zimbabwe. I am running the two oceans and comrades this year, do I taper for two oceans then pick it up again after the race for comrades. I am running on average 320k a month. I am in D seeding, do I also do another ultra before comrades how soon after two oceans shall I do it. Don’t want to be over training.
