Race Review : Irene Ultra 21 2017


Race ReviewThese are my thoughts on the race…

I don’t recall having run this race before.

It was another early start for me, 3:30 AM I was up and getting ready to drive through to Centurion.

OMG! Traffic jam the minute you got off the highway! No! No! No! Unacceptable that many spent at least 30 – 60 minutes making their way to the starting area and still had to find parking. As it turned out, the race started 28 minutes late, 6 AM start for the Ultra and 21.1km marathons. When we were almost the 2km mark, there were still runners making their way to the start of the race. Unacceptable!

Race Review : Deloitte Pretoria Race 2017

Race ReviewThese are my thoughts on the race…

Early Sunday morning for us again… I think our bodies are getting used to it now. The road to the start of the race was unusually misty, this just meant us being a little more cautious on the road to the start.

We arrived with 30 minutes to spare.

Start of the race was a little chaotic today. Just before the start of the race, runners, haven’t seen it at the cycling events, but yes at swimming, we want to make sure we’ve removed any extra liquids from our body. Around the 10k holding area there Continue reading

To Run or Not Run when it’s raining…

Train in the rain

How do you feel about training (read as running) in the rain? 

Personally, I avoid it if I’m training for a specific race. When there are only a few weeks left to that race, I don’t want to risk getting sick or injuring myself leading up to it.

On the flip side, how would those that live in countries that are constantly wet train?  Treadmill the year round?

Surely not?! Continue reading
