We were treated to a beautiful autumnal evening for our special Bank Holiday Kenyan Hills Training session. 7 Goodgymmers from all different boroughs joined us at the Emirates Stadium for a solid endurance workout!

Our crew started the session with a warm up (ankling, high knees, heel lifts, glutes and hamstrings), focusing on our key hill running muscles.

The workout was:

7 minutes hill running (ups and downs) at 60-70% or 1 hour effort level. 3 minutes recovery walking.

Repeat 3 times (21 min running, 9 min recovery)

Our team did a fantastic job with this session- some of our runners actually got faster towards the final rep- very impressive! Well done guys.

If you are interested in more interval session fun, Trainer Simon will be leading a 1 mile and 5km time trial this Sunday. More info can be found here:
