Oxfordshire Track and Field Championships 2018

The date has been set for the main championships weekend, and it’s 12/13 May. Details and entry form here. There is no mention of a walking event, but there is no mention of ANY event longer than 1500m, so probably we can expect a further announcement.

Week commencing 26 March 2018

Training during the week :  on Monday, 10k-ish fartlek. Maybe a Radley Lakes loop if it’s reasonably dry? On Wednesday, threshold session on laps of the estate.

Training at the weekend : Should do a daylight distance session. Any suggestions ? (FYI, there’s no Good Friday Walk advertised on the Radley village website this year.)

Racing over Easter weekend :  The only event in the South is the open meeting at Tonbridge School, Kent, at 10:45 on Easter Monday.

Dominic and Daniel King have been selected by BA for a British team in this event, which is the trial race for the European Championships in Berlin later in the year. Also, a women’s 50k which hasn’t been included before with a number of names attempting the distance for the first time. YouTube Live coverage is here, I can’t see an English language website but the event usually starts around 8 am our time.

Video Coverage of European Masters Indoors – update #1

Madrid

The European Masters Indoors are now under way, and video streaming is promised. An app must be downloaded (instructions given here) and then apparently you can either stream live or look at recorded events. The app is for Android and Apple only. I’ve tested the Apple one, it seems to work. For PC or Web, maybe when something is happening you will be able to see it by clicking on ‘Streaming’ on the EMACI website here (can’t see why it would be there otherwise). The UK times of the walks events are :

3000m Womens Tuesday 11:40 – 13:30
3000m Mens Wednesday 12:40 – 16:30
5000m Friday 9:30 – 12:50

and we’re yet to see whether coverage will be set up on the Casa del Campo, for the 5000m’s, as well as from the stadium for the 3000m’s.

Update #1 : it looks like there is also live streaming on YouTube, first day here.

Training during the week :  on Monday, no session is planned, as freezing temperatures are again predicted and there’s not likely to be any safe surface. Rest, cross-train, or use a treadmill instead. On Wednesday, threshold session on laps of the estate.

Training at the weekend : Should do a daylight distance session. Any suggestions ?

Racing at the weekend :  None, probably because of the European Indoors Masters in Madrid. Best wishes to all our friends competing there.
