Lev - if you want to keep running, I suggest going out without a watch on a scenic route. Take your time and enjoy being out in the sun (hopefully!), and just come back when you feel like it. Alternatively, just don't run for a couple of days, but I prefer the first option when not feeling up for "proper" running.
ON7 - well done at Bearbrook. I was actually going to run (leg was feeling OK), but saw the weather and decided against it! I would have run if I'd been "racing", but not much point going out in that weather to jog around in 45 mins. Think that's my 3rd DNS in 10 years (no DNFs).
Jools - sounds like a good run, I'm assuming it was fairly windy?
Al_P - well done, especially with the parkrun combo. Outrageous for Marigold to show up pot-hunting. I expect in ultras even if you're not feeling good towards the end, if you're running OK you're probably making up ground on others.
DrDave - very nice training, sounds like you're going well.
I tried a run on Friday and did 4M without too many problems. Pace was OK too, but maybe because I'm very well rested! Then an hour on the turbo yesterday.
So I think I'm nearly ready to resume some more consistent training. I'll probably stick to shorter runs for now though.
