We welcomed some traveling GG members from Leicester in the form of Zachary who was one his first run and Elena. You are both welcome back anytime and hope you enjoyed it!

This week we were back to help out our good pal PARKY ROB who is always so appreciative of the work we do. Unfortunately he had some bad news for us, letting us know that some of the trees in the park were to be chopped down due to Ash die back. Sad times, but necessary to keep the park users safe.

Out task for this week was to cut back three beds that were getting a bit keen with the better weather and encroaching onto the pavement and park a bit too much, so we got straight to it giving them a good haircut.

James proved too strong for the secateurs which were fortunately the only casualty on the night.

Well I avoided the cape as long as I could but MARVELOUS MAX wouldn't let me get away with it. With the 200 milestone reminder it was time to done the silky marvel and embrace the magic. We said our goodbyes to Rob and some of the other runners and headed to the U-Mix center for some DOUBLE TROUBLE, working in pairs and each taking on 4 exercises in total, including:

  • Box Jumps
  • Step Ups
  • Leg Lifts
  • Chin Ups

Back at base we stretched off and headed in to sample the extensive new menu The Showroom had to offer.

Until next week, happy running :)
