There is so much to be said about physical preparation for running the Comrades Marathon. 

I have created a number of pages dedicated to Physical Preparation in my “Comrades, the ALSORAN way” website.  I have used simple phrases and clichés to get my point across.  

Please realise that everything I write about is drawn from my own experiences and the experiences of a few close friends that I have had the privilege of training and running with.  This is my perspective and I am just “putting it out there” so to speak.  You may disagree with me on a number of points and that is OK, the thing is, they have all worked for me! 

As topics come to mind I will create pages to cover them.  This really is a work in progress.  Bear with me!  I hope you find this information useful.  Feel free to drop me an email and let me know what you think.
