selbs -- I had the near-fainting problem after my BGR, and others have too. Sounds tough, but well bagged, it will be much easier next time!
PP, Lev, Toro, DS2 -- you were all magnificent
Dachs -- it's getting towards head-torch time again.
bainspj -- nice training, sorry about the false alarm!
ON7 -- I will definitely taper for my half in 2 weeks.
I think I did do some mischief to my left calf in my last fast lap yesterday. It felt very stiff walking round town later (failed to give chase to a bike thief as a result!), and felt 'wrong' when compressed by squatting down. In the eventing, I found a specific tight patch and massaged it mercilessly for about 1.5 hours while watching a film and drinking beer as muscle relaxant/anaesthetic. After which it was sore -- probably from massage damage -- but not longer tight/stiff, so _hopefully_ I did the right thing there. Cycled 10.4M this morning but won't try running on it until tomorrow at least, maybe Weds, to let it calm down.
Edit: X-posted you DrD -- so at least I'm not the only one able to inflict DOMS on myself in training! Hope it all comes right for Abingdon.
