TR -- I'd not realised Swashbuckler had already come and gone without you, really sorry about that. Maybe you're a victim of the known drop in immune function after a marathon race.
Steve6 -- what OS says. Google "overtraining" and see if it's talking about you. If so, running through it is the last thing to do -- give it a good rest and ease back in gently. I got into a hideous overtraining spiral as a youth, and just got slower of pace and crankier of leg the more I did.
CC82 -- best of luck with Edinburgh! You've been doing a lot of quality but look very light on the long runs, so watch out for going out too fast only to blow up horribly in the last few miles (hitting the wall/cramping up etc). Really try to go no faster than target pace in the first half, though it will (should) feel stupidly easy.
Tomorrow I've got a 5-year follow-up medical study including a proper body fat measurement (using a dual X-ray technique), glucose tolerance, blood fats, VO2max vague estimate from light jogging, and a week of wearing an activity monitor. Which I'll christen with a low-key 10k on Sunday . (Not expecting much there but it's convenient to race again this weekend.)
