Congratulations to Callum Wilkinson, who joined that elite club of British race walking world champions at Bydgoszcz on Saturday !

Training during the week :  on Monday, 10k-ish fartlek. On Wednesday, a threshold session on the 2.5k lap, and also a track session for anyone who wants one.

Training at the weekend : if not racing, should do a distance session. Any suggestions ?

Racing at the weekend : on Saturday at 12:00, a 5000m track race at the Allianz Stadium, London, in the London Inter-Club Challenge and the Enfield League. On Sunday, two events, the AAAs / English Championships / UKCAU Inter-Counties in Bedford with 3000m races from 10:50 onwards, and the BMAF 10000m track championships in Birmingham at 4 pm. Entries are closed for both now, and there are Oxfordshire athletes defending titles in each !

Callum Wilkinson and Cameron Corbishley go in this race at 08:30 UK time tomorrow, Saturday 23rd. Live coverage should be available here (thanks for the link John C).
