Keeping Occupied in January – a few suggestions

It’s difficult to believe we’re entering the New Year still haunted by a virus but such is the case. With this in mind we’re suggesting that you might consider undertaking any or all of these challenges in the next few weeks.

  1. Once again we are encouraging you to submit a 3 kilometres clocking for the January edition of our Club Virtual Series – by Tuesday, February 2 at the latest.
  2. It would be great too if you feel able to participate in John and Helen’s weekly World Virtual Series 2k, We’ve a reputation to defend, both as committed supporters of the initiative from the outset and as the leading team in the Age-graded competition.
  3. We’ve been wondering too, how you are managing to stay active and fit in these restricted times? Any thoughts, anecdotes on this subject would be gratefully received and shared.
  4. Finally Martin Payne and Greg Smith kicked off the fascinating issue of race walking shoes a few months ago but we didn’t play ball. I’ve been thinking about this more recently. The first that I remember were a pair of leather cycling shoes, to which my dad added a heel. It would be more than interesting to hear more about the diversity of shoes worn by our members across the years.
