Soggy sprints and a wet walk
14 GoodGymers made their way 5.0km on a training session in Oxford.

A bit of rain never stopped us! For tonight's training session, three GoodGymers headed down the river for an evening walk, while the rest of us made our way on to Roger Bannister Track. During the workout, we managed to dodge a lane of hurdles on one side and scores of student sprinters on the other as we completed a ladder workout - first increasing our sprinting (and recovery!) distances with every round, then decreasing on the way back down.
The walkers, meanwhile, journeyed down to Iffley Lock on the River Thames, befriending a cat along the way.
Both the sprinters and the walkers covered nearly 5k - well done everyone! I hope you've managed to dry off and warm up.
Welcome to GoodGym, Naoise! Thanks for braving the weather for your first session - hope to see you again soon.
