Now talking about executing the dream, I have one more hurdle to cross and that is to qualify. In order to run comrades, I should have run a 'qualifying' marathon in the past year under 5 hours. My last qualifying run was Big Sur on May 1, 2011.. but I need something later and by May 2012 to run this in June 2012.
Though I did not plan for it, I am hoping to use Colombo Marathon as a qualifier and jump past the 'qualifier' hurdle.
Now, another crucial question I need to deal with is.. 'How do I train for a 90K run?'. a distance that I have never done before. The farthest I have gone is just 48k (Chennai - Mahapallipuram) and comrades would be more than double of that. All along, I have simply be sticking to 3 core principles and they have been serving me well...
- No two days missed
- Min 10k per run
- 50k per week
I am not sure if this would suffice for Comrades. What do you think?
My goal is to simply come under the stipulated time and nothing more. Can you suggest few practical training regimen? Looking for your input to shape my Comrades run... Come help me realize my dream.
