Bains. Good to see you're getting it all moving. Keep it slow and steady as you build it back up. I'm sure your lightening pace will return soon enough.
tmoth, sorry to hear you had to have a cutback week forced on you! You're slacking with a measly 72 miles. Punishment should be on the menu this week. hill reps a plenty. In all seriousness, it might not have hurt to have the weekend off.
Might as well call Al_p and SL a couple of slackers with that mileage! AL looking good for the 2:2X:XX in London. in answer to your question, not as hilly as you would think. The route is no muddy hilly off road trail across moorland. It's a beautiful spot, a service road that goes around the burrator reservoir. There are loads of runners, cyclists, walkers. It's a great place to train, 3.9 mile route. Three shortish up hills, two of them make me puff a bit, but 5 and a bit laps, it's not a flat course, those hills drag out a few 4 letter words once you get in the teens.
If anyone is down that way and wants to join me on a Sunday I could be back there soon. message me.
