We consider a minimal technicolour theory with two techniflavours in the adjoint representation of an SU(2) technicolour gauge group which has been argued to feature walking dynamics. We show how to naturally embed this theory in an extended technicolour model capable of generating the top quark mass. We investigate the precision constraints and conclude that such models, in the light of the most recent precision data fit, are not ruled out.
