With the Tilsley Park facility closed, temperatures of -4 / -5C forecast, and tarmac around Abingdon being reported as icy last night – with no thaw today – I’m cancelling tonight’s training.

Training during the week :  on Monday, 10k-ish easy or fartlek. On Wednesday, threshold session on laps of the estate.

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

It’s expected to be very cold in the evenings next week, so sessions may be changed or cancelled if there are no suitable surfaces available.

Racing at the weekend :  At 11:45 on Saturday, a 5 mile race in the Enfield League, at Donkey Lane. Shorter distances available. League website here, start of the last race pictured above. On Sunday, there is a 3000m race in the England Masters Indoor Inter-Area Challenge at Lee Valley, but you’ll need to be selected by your Masters Area.
