On a lovely mild Sunday morning, our intrepid Goodgymmers from North, West, South and East London gathered together at Victoria Park track for our monthly Track Attack Time Trial session.

Matthew, Harvey, Emily, Jacqui, John, Jo and James lined up for the 5km time trial (aka 12.5 laps of our 400m track), while Latoya and Simon took on time keeping and photography duties. Really solid running on display by our crew- super consistency over the longer endurance distance too. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the showdown between Harvey and Matthew, and observing some racing manoeuvres at play!

As the rain started to fall, Latoya, Simon, Matt and Harvey set off for their 1 mile (4 lap) attempts. Some really impressive performances on display, including Latoya putting in the most exceptional final 200m sprint of the morning! Awesome running!

Following a hard session, we treated ourselves to coffee and breakfast at the Park Café across the way, to celebrate our achievements. What a top way to start a Sunday morning!
