Two hardy GGers got their training on this week with a final countdown (or up) set of exercises over the week.

The challenge was to complete:

7 ... a 7k run, walk, ride (or mixture) 6... 6 squat jumps 5... an activity that contains the number 5 4 ... 4 burpees 3 ... a 3k run, walk or ride (or mixture) 2 ... 2 rounds of 20 star jumps 1... a 1 minute plank

Jon's effort was:

"Monday 1 visit to my parents while walking

Tuesday 2 activities in one day (a run and a walk)

Wednesday 3 hour walk

Thursday 4 mile walk

Friday (clutching at straws) I finished a walk in 1:14:05 (it's the :05 that counts)

Saturday - walked 3 laps of bolam lake in 60 mins (ish... forgot to start my Garmin)

Sunday - ran 7km (4.35m)"

Louise did:

"It’s in the bag! A 7k bike ride, a 5 hidden in the elevation of a run, a 3k walk to work ... and ...the junpy planky bit".. submitted using an amazing timelapse video you can see on our Facebook Group

Well done, you both smashed it!
