Back together again...

A lovely sized group headed to our favourite Meath Gardens this evening for our Monday night fitness session.

We arrived in dribs and drabs: some came straight to Meath; others arrived from our Monday night task at Hollybush, thanks to fabulous task-and-run-leading by Leo.

Show us your moves

Tonight's movement menu consisted of a couple of running drills, to work on hip drive and hip mobility; some standing balance-and-core moves, before a tough little lower body/upper body/core circuit.

We finished with our favourite grey-and-hare relay-esque speed game before some fiddly-but-effective stretches.

Pat on the back.

Well done to everyone who showed up and ploughed through all this content. It's lovely to learn how to be together in a group once again, with a little small talk and a lot of strength work.

Shout outs tonight to Joanna, our wonderful Task Owner from favourite Meath Gardens who we saw on her way home! And who took some fab aerial pics of us working out.

...While shout-out of the night goes to Leo, who didn't miss a beat when picking up our first group run baton, taking both the good-sized team to Hollybush, navigating a picturesque canal run, all before devouring 45 mins of fiery fitness moves.

Thanks for a lovely evening, everyone. Until next week.
