A HUGE GG welcome to new runner, coming all the way from Peru to check out GGSHEFF....

This week was HUGE with so many runners coming out on a brisk Jan eve to do good in the steel city!
This weeks good was to help REGATHER and GORGEOUS GARETH with the planting of 200 spring bulbs around the Regather HQ so that it is beautiful come spring for all visitors and local residents who regularly pass through.
On arrival we split into 4 teams. With one team doing a bit of plogging around the site the other teams were either planting bulbs or coming to do some exercise. After a spell we swapped around with everyone getting a chance to get some exercise as well as exercise their bulb planting skills.
Exercise wise this week we had a go at an EMOM session - Every Minute On the Minute, where we tried to complete 20 reps of an exercise and once complete we had the remaining time up to the minute we were on to recover so you could either choose to smash it out quick and have longer to recover or take a bit longer and lower the intensity of the exercise. Everyone did really well and we got in;
- Press Up's
- Step Up's
- Star Jumps
- Shoulder Taps
- Kick back
Even the local were cheering us on from the high rises!
It's better than watching TV . R.Kenning
Once we were all done we paused to witness the final bulb being planted by Gareth as we all watched on in a circular cult like fashion (we're not a cult, honest....)
Shall we all hold hands? T.Archer
On route back we tried a little team game involving wall sits and ramp sprints, which for sure brought out some competition in some, lovely to see.
Thanks all for a great eve and until next time....
Happy Running :)
