And then we were back

It was quite a sight: 11 GoodGym runners turning up one-by-one to meet by the fallen tree in lovely Meath Gardens, for our first day back of organised outdoor sport.

We said our hello's; we went through our health and safety, we distanced and distanced a bit more, and started this evening's exercise itinerary...

We did...

First up was...the running. Stephen led the strong squad for a couple of laps, followed by Becky taking her turn to get the team around. We then blitzed what seemed like dozens of dynamic stretches, some running drills, strength work and some more...running, playing the great greyhound-and-hare game, and then the "I-know-lets-finish-with-the-blended-speed-lap."

The runners were so resilient when having to complete tough lap after tough lap.

We finished with some static stretches before saying a brief cheerio, and heading home for dinner.

Counting our blessings

It was a lovely evening: the sun shone, the tarmac beckoned, the laughter echoed and the support remained throughout.

Well done everyone.
