Garmin question re following courses & recording activities

I have a Garmin 800 and today I went to Dorking and followed a course that I had created. All the ride was being recorded fine until I stopped for a break. I carried on my ride and went home and have only just now realised that it had stopped recording the activity from my break onwards. It was giving me directions for the rest of the ride just fine though.

Is it possible to follow course directions without data being recorded with the 800, or did mine mess up?
I've only recently got it so still trying to figure it out.

It's especially frustrating because I had a really good ride up leith hill and would liked to have looked at my stats.
