If you can stand even more excitement after Jo Pavey’s fantastic victory, Tom Bosworth goes in the men’s 20k walk in the European Athletics Championships tomorrow morning, 13 August. I believe the race starts at 8:20.

BBC2 coverage starts at 9 am – there are other events on but at least the BBC website acknowledges that the walk is happenning.

Eurosport coverage, if you can get it, starts at 8:15 so quite possibly they’re going to cover the start of the walk at least.

Online the BBC coverage will be on their website, and there is also a European Athletics Live Feed here. If your broadband is good enough this may be your best bet.

The women go at 8:10 am on Thursday, and the mens 50k is at 8:10 on Friday. No British interest in either event, but Irish interest in both. After Robbie’s interview following his World Championship victory, the BBC might be counting them as honorary Brits !

Week Commencing 11 August

Suggested sessions are :

Training on Monday 11 August : 10k-ish again, done steady or as a fartlek

Wednesday 13th : threshold session on laps of the estate.

Don’t forget to come at 6:30 for warmup and drills if you can make it. Easy sessions also available.

Racing during the week : Veterans AC 5 mile championship race at Battersea Park, 7 pm on Tuesday.

Racing at the weekend : none within easy reach, with both the European Senior and Veterans’ championships taking place.
