Training this week : on Monday, easy / fartlek session of 10-11k. On Wednesday, hopefully on track for warmups, drills, agility/balance/co-ordination and sprints. Normal track fee will apply. But the forecast is for cold weather to return, so come prepared for road work instead, i.e. hi-viz clothing. No props required for agility / balance / co-ordination this week.

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

Racing at the weekend : On Saturday, at Donkey Lane, Enfield at 11:45, a 5 mile race, the first in this year’s Enfield League. More details likely soon.

Race Walking Association : hold their AGM at Nuneaton on Sunday. Some of us may be going.

Training this week : on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, Tilsley Park is shut and I’m sure we’ll all have plenty of other things to do, so no training is scheduled. The rest of the week will give an opportunity for getting back into the swing of things, perhaps even training in the daylight, so does anyone want to suggest anything ?

Also, not proposing to schedule anything for New Year’s Eve, but again a daylight training session is possible. Normal service to be resumed on the 2nd !

Racing on Boxing Day : Traditional races at 9:30 am at Southend over one mile on the track, and at Preston Park, Brighton at 10:30 am over 1.8 or 5.5 miles.

Happy Christmas to all !
