Tempo surfaces

Living in the north of England we get pretty nasty wet and windy weather most of the year! How do you folks in Canada and places manage to do tempo off track and on grass when the weather and/or the surface is bad?

basically i dont have any grass good enough, so what alternatives have you used?


may be the track with good shoes.

Contrary to popular thinking, we do not live in constant winter weather. I can do outdoor tempo usually April/May to October on grass (okay… except for the odd May blizzard)

FYI…most major malls, at least here in ontario, canada, allow people to do walking/brisk walking programs during the winter months before the malls open up. However, I don’t know if they would fancy someone doing tempo, but if you explain…who knows.
