Training this week : on Monday, easy or fartlek session up to 10/11k. On Wednesday : hoping to go on the track, for agility/balance/co-ordination, drills and sprints. Agility/Balance/Co-ordination will require an exercise mat and warm clothing. But at the moment the weather forecast isn’t great for Wednesday, so come equipped for road work (i.e. hi-viz clothing) on both days.
Training at the weekend : Should do a distance session if possible. Any suggestions?
Racing at the weekend : Doesn’t seem to be any.

Training this week : on Monday and Wednesday : more agility / balance / co-ordination based on the UK Athletics “Athletics 365” programme. Full details here. On Monday, if you have them, please bring an exercise mat, and a yoga strap or piece of rope or something similar. On Wednesday, a mat and a ball (tennis ball or similar). Cones and a running ladder will also be needed, I believe they’re available at the track. Track fee will apply. Have extra layers to wear as it will not be very energetic.
Training at the weekend : Do something involving some distance – Chiltern League cross-country (Horspath, Saturday, if you’re a member of a club that participates) ? cycling ? jog a parkrun (Oxford, Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Witney or Didcot) ? a ramble (the Ramblers have a 12-mile walk from Hurley, near Marlow on Sunday, among other options) ? or similar.
Racing at the weekend : on Saturday, a 5 mile race in the Enfield League, at Lee Valley at 1 pm. Some details here, more likely during the week.
