week 1 of marathon training went good. week 2 has not really progressed. Still, hopefully a quiet weekend will help me to get out both days.

What: zilch again!
Why: Did too much at circuits on Monday and for the first time ever have been unable to run for 3 days due to extreme muscle soreness.

Felt like I'd done a marathon! Sitting down was painful and trying to straighten out my leg even more painful.

Must have done about 300 steps ups fast and goodness knows how many lunges.

Never again! Just hope I've not blown my chance of a good time at Cheddar 1/2 tomorrow.

Just like to add that cycling today turned into a nightmarish experience in torrential rain. Lovely. (Also I cycled through a six-inch deep megapuddle that must have been at least 400 metres long!)

Did my new longer Friday run in 50:05 (suspect length is between 7¼ and 7½ miles - need to measure it properly).
Not brilliantly fast, but it was the wettest run I've had in ages - rain was a fine, v heavy drizzle much of the way round, huge puddles to skirt, too much traffic (some of which was driving through the puddles I thought deliberately), and the delights of the Village Road hill climb halfway round (almost exactly 800m long, ~150 ft up, done tonight in 3:46 - watch this space, it'll get better over time).
Didn't feel particularly drained afterwards either. So q pleased on balance.

What: 5 miles in the pouring rain
Why: good excuse to get out of work at lunch time and test the new waterproof :)
Last hard day: Monday
Last rest day: yesterday
