Is Comrades silver a bit of a stretch this year?

On today’s Ask Coach Parry podcast, it is Friday, the weekend is upon us and only a few weeks to go to the 2015 Comrades Marathon. Lindsey, today’s question comes from a guy who is no stranger to road running and athletics in South Africa, Wes Botton, one of the top journo’s in the sport and he’s not a bad athlete himself either. Wes is saying that he’s very underdone for Comrades this year. He’s done far less mileage than he should have. He did 56km last week Friday at five minutes a kilometre and felt pretty comfortable, sore but okay he said. He said, can he aim for silver and hope that he doesn’t blow or should he go for a Bill Rowan?
