10 fitness seeking GoodGymers skilfully dominated the first Fitness 4 All session of the month long stay in Islington.

On a windy evening in North London we used the bright lights of Emirates stadium to illuminate our running track for the evening.

After a 5 minute warm up jog we mobilised and activated some key running muscles and joints before beginning a series of running form drills designed to improve our running efficiency.

We worked on knee drive, foot strike and arm swing to get a taster of a few fundamental running form skills.

We then moved onto the main meat of the session where we worked on our pacing skill to repeat 3 sets of three 150m reps in exact times with the added variable of a stiff Northerly wind.

Some excellent Pacing Skills as well as ever important mental focus and determination brought us to a top work out for all runners!

A gentle warm down and static stretch out finished off a great fitness session!!

Hope to see you all again next week for some more Thursday Fitness 4 All action!

Smooth Running
