My muscles were still really quite painful on Tuesday. I had made plans to cycle with Roger and I wasn't going to let him down. When I rocked up at Roger's he was just recovering from a cold, so we (thankfully) decided to go on a shorter ride today. We had a nice time cycling his tandem and essentially cycled a loop going to Hockley Heath and back.

Midweek and my thighs were still real achey. Hmm, only a few days to go to my impending marathon. I had wanted to run twice this week and cover 9 miles. That was my plan. I ran just over 6.5k on the Wednesday and figured that would be it until the big 'un. My legs still ached. My diet had been real bad and oh well, whatever, never mind.
Thursday was spent resting my pins. They had started to feel better. The London Marathon Folk had sent me a parcel. This parcel contained a magazine which basically informed 'sorry loser', you have not got a ballot place for the 2016 marathon. Shame that (sarcasm). As way of consolation, they sent me a rather funky Spiderman suit. Bonus!
Friday was spent panicking!
My run is tomorrow. Arghh. If you would like to sponsor me (and a big big thanks to those that have), please visit here!
