We returned to the Emirates stadium for Goodgym Islington's second weekly fitness challenge. 5 local Goodgym folks braved the blustery winds to join us for the "Tony to Dennis interval session".

The perimeter of the Emirates stadium is around 800m in length for a full loop. There are also various statues located around the area, including sculptures of manager Tony Adams and legendary player Dennis Bergkamp. The distance between these guys is about 250m.

The session was as follows:

50% effort, moderate-easy pace running around the Emirates.

70-80% effort faster run between Tony and Dennis.

Repeat for 7 min (3 min walk rest) x 3

(Total session time: 30 minutes)

Our crew did a great job, maintaining excellent consistency even whilst battling a headwind during the speedy efforts! Well done!
