This post was previously titled ‘Nosh with Race Walking Royalty’ – then I was gently advised to consult the Urban Dictionary. You knew what I meant anyway.
An email from John Hall, which some of us might have seen already. When do we want to have the 10000m track championships at Horspath ?
Training at Tilsley Park on Monday 16 January : drills and technical repetitions on the track, followed by 200m repetitions for those that can stay.
Training from Tilsley Park on Wednesday 18 January : threshold session on the 2.33k loop.
That’s the plan, but bear in mind that cold conditions are forecast, so it’s possible the management will declare the track unusable. Please come prepared for other sessions too.

Congratulations to Noel, braving the cold to do the 15k at Steyning last Saturday in 1:38:07 !
Training from Tilsley Park, 9 and 11 January : I’ve been out of touch for the last couple of weeks, so I don’t know what training people have been doing. On Monday, please come ready to do any session, and we will start with a chat about what’s appropriate. Please come with money for track, just in case. Appreciated that the XC County Championships were on Sunday, so some may want an easier session.
Racing at the weekend : only the Steyning 15k, at 2pm on Saturday, which I know some have been interested in.
