I thought my start was slower than usual, but when I reached the bandstand on the first lap I noticed I was passing people who I would normally only see in the distance - I assumed they were just having an off day, but resolved to keep in front of them.
It wasn't until I got to the end that I realised that something was up, my watch seemed to be saying I was over 30
seconds quicker than usual - the SMS said it was closer to 40 seconds with a time of 21'44!
I've yet to come within even 20 seconds of that time, and can't see the PB ever falling.
I'm too much older, fatter and generally slower now
