Having only done short distances for a while now, a few members asked if we could run a bit more! More running! Of course… da doo run run, da doo run run…

So tonight’s session was one of two halves. The first half was to knock out a 5km run (or 2km for those who preferred it) then onto a litter pick.

A firm favorite meet up point for a session like this has always been Upton Court Park.

Did you know?

Upton Court Park used to be farm land and was acquired by Slough Council in the 1930’s

Warming up ... sounds like a bit of a stretch to me

We started off with some running drills to warm everyone up then split into our two groups.

We sent the 5k team off first whilst the 2k’ers did some bench push ups. Once all run and dusted Gauri and Meera set off to catch up with Ninja Pam!

I managed to catch up with the 5k crew just as they turned at the Harvestor (I’m sure they went for a sneaky without me!).

Huge well done to the team for getting in more km than we usually do. Pam, Gauri and Meera did 3km, rest of team did 5km whilst Ricky went the extra mile and got 6km!

We then cracked on with a litter pick of the car park, managing a nice 5 bags of rubbish before heading off for the warmth of home!
