Blog - Lessons from athletics
Today’s article for #WalkingWednesday on On Track Athletics and Off Track and Running is about the international heroes of race walking. Stay tuned for the second part, talking about Britain’s greatest walkers.

In December I travelled to Ireland for a 20km race and returned with a small PB. The race had been a struggle as I misjudged my fitness and paced it poorly. I resolved to rest over Christmas and then start 2019 hunting for some better performances. To that end, I competed in the Murray Lambden Open 20km in the Isle of Man and gained a more satisfying result.
