I'm a bit better thanx Emmy. I think you're all right and I am expecting too much of myself (recovery, back running, etc) and giving myself too hard a time when I feel things aren't as should be. And withdrawal symptoms from friendly, supportive people are not helping!
I ran a pathetic 5 miles last night with some folks from town. All ok, they waited for me whilst I stretched when needed etc but. it didn't help my confidence when I was struggling.....until I realised 8m/m average was expecting a lot!! My hip niggle is back but I think it is due to new post round which has a very unwelcome number of steps/stairs. I this round a few days per week prior to the ultra, and have been back on it constantly since returning.
Hope the 18 miler goes well Eggy.
kS - sorry but I did chuckle.
