On a evening of perfect running conditions the Fitness 4 All crew gathered in Highbury to refine our techniques, get a little stronger in the key running muscles and tendons then expand our Cardiovascular efficiency and capacity with three blocks of continuous running at different paces.

Keeping to the grassy area to reduce the impact on the body we performed a range of running drills to get our foot to strike the ground in the perfect place and directly under our bodies. We then worked on our leg strength in our calfs, hamstrings and quadriceps before smashing 3 blocks of 4 minutes of continuous running alternating with an accelerating faster pace then recovering with a slow easy pace. 3 strong 4 minute blocks maintaining great running form rounded off a great session and everyone showed great improvement and gave a tip top effort!!

Be grateful to see you again next week!
