Running Bad

I've been running pretty bad recently, in fact the last three months I must be down about 12 buy ins, even had to redeposit on FTP last week.
I had to bite the bullet and drop back down to 25c/50c last week and after a couple of losing sessions I managed a couple of (small) winning sessions.
The only consolation is that Hold 'Em Manager says I am running at about $450 dollars below my EV so I guess with a little luck things wouldn't be so bad.
Fortunately my live game seems unaffected by the online downswing, I failed to qualify online for the Malaga €1500 + €150 event but I did play in the €100 freezeout at San Roque last Saturday managing 2nd out of 21 for around €570, I may go back tonight to play again in the €50 single rebuy or add on, or maybe Gib casino for the cash game after the £5 rebuy crapshoot.
I folded a full house playing online a few days ago, the hand history is below, I'd be grateful for any feedback on it, general consensus so far is that I'm an idiot to even consider folding but given that, check - call, check - call, push on river is standard donk play for 'I think I've got the nuts' at this level, I'm not so sure

Afterwards he typed in chat that he had flopped the straight which did make me lol, he was playing terribly so maybe he did, maybe he thought the straight was good ?
