A big GG welcome to first time GG'er;
Give him a cheer and a follow.
We huddled together for a loving brief before setting off last night to an old friend that we hadn't been back to in a while of Heeley City Farm.
This community gem has sooooo much going on including the city farm itself with all it's animals, playgrounds, workshops and events that are so loved by the local community and visitors alike.
This week we helped Julie with leafleting around the area to promote the beer festival which will bring much needed funds into the farm to help keep it going and make the site sustainable for future generation to benefit and learn from all it offers. SENSATIONAL STEVE even came prepared with wooden spoons to save fingers from the dreaded letter box monsters!
What it offered us last night at the end of our rounds was a lovely steep hill, closed off to traffic which made for the perfect hill rep hill, so we partnered up with someone of a comparable pace and challenged each other with a 3 rep set up the hill in question. Everyone put in a great effort with some red faces and panting at the finish proving people had really put in a strong effort which was great to see. Hill reps are so good for developing fitness and although may not always be people first choice a great exercise which is much better practiced in pairs to stretch yourself!
On the way back we had some extra loops and link arm circle squats to ensure we all stayed together for the kids (any Blink fans....).
Until next time, happy running! :)
