Nine nimble GoodGymers attended an online strength and conditioning training session.

The aim of the session was, as always, to stay connected during lockdown while staying active together. After a quick welcome and catch-up, I led the team through a series of exercises that will help them run stronger and (hopefully) stay injury free. By incoprorating these kinds of exercises into your weekly routine, you'll see a clear boost in your running.

As usual, the team got stuck in, committing to those lungs, squats and abb crunches. The single leg superman proved the most tricky, but also the most fun, of all the exercises. We finished the session with some lovely stretches.

It was great to welcome newbies Emma and Martin (Emma, Martin didn't sign-up so I don't have their email address and can't add them to this report without it!!!). As well as saying welcome back to James who has still only met us online so far.
