For the finale of the online fitness session season, we had a retesting week which had options to try your hand to beat your performance over the last few months of Sally Up, Sally Down, 15 minute run and 5km race. Of course, this also turned out to be the hottest week of the year so far, including the hottest day of the year so far and some casual torrential rain the rest of the time.

Us GoodGymers tried our best but our poor British-winter acclimatised selves were not ready for it and, to my knowledge, none of us managed to beat our previous times/ performances (let me know if this is not the case!). Big shout out to Matt who attempted both the 15 minute challenge and 5k challenge on the hottest day of the year - ooft.

The positive of all of this is it shows just how much the GoodGymers upped the ante over the fitness sessions for the past 3 months. Massive well done to everyone who got involved, from Week 1 to Week .... Did anyone manage to keep count?!

Now enjoy running outside as much as you like (but remember to keep doing at least some core)!
