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.
