Great times at Aldershot for everyone, well almost everyone.
I was by the north exit as the open leg of the seniors came blasting by. The fact that Samir appeared to look like he was plodding along, yet ran 20:25, makes me wonder what speed he'd go when he appears like the leaders did, almost sprinting.
Not so long ago, I ran that event 3kg's heavier and carrying a leg injury, and ran nearly a minute faster than yesterday. Had a suspicion that something else might have been amiss hit me when meeting SH after my leg. Not normal to be so ebullient after running so poorly.
Weekly mileages in the weeks leading up to the event: 24, 22, 17, 9, 8, 6, 9 & 10 including the relay.
