Race week: What to do & not to do


It is Comrades Marathon 2014 race week. This time next week, it will all be over. All that will remain are memories and aching bodies. As important as Sunday’s Comrades Marathon is, the week leading up to it is vital.

The next few days can make or break your race on Sunday. What you do between now and race day will have a huge impact on how your run goes on the big day. You probably have hundreds of questions bouncing around your head at the moment. Should I be running this week? Should I not be running more this week? What should I be eating and drinking this week? Should I drive the route when I get to Kwa-Zulu Natal? Why shouldn’t I drive the route when I get there?

It is normal to be second guessing every decision you’ve made up until now. Comrades Marathon race week is enough to drive anyone insane! The good news is Comrades Coach Lindsey Parry has some great advice for you on how to survive the days leading up to Comrades.
