Tonight was always going to be a group session close to my heart. I have suffered with mental health issues and still do. I also know i'm not the only one within our group either. I have learnt that talking about it and keeping fit is also a great way to combat it, so thats exactly what we did this evening.........

Now completely dark at seven o'clock i set up my lights for our warm up. This was followed by our circle of doom fitness session. Closed knee squats were on the menu today, and to my delight some high numbers were being thrown on the sponge dice. YAY!!!!!!!!!

With legs now like jelly we handed out the litter picking sticks, head lamps and bags and got ourself into teams. There wasn't going to be any great running distances covered this evening as the main topic was to talk more to each other about absolutely anything you wanted.

WITH LEGS LIKE JELLY..................

We started with the gardens and green areas of the sports centre then jogged, power walked and litter picked our way to the Danson Youth Centre car park for a swoop of area. It was then onto the adult education centre before heading down towards the rail bridge. It was here we re-grouped for our fast dash run. Those who wanted to do the dash headed off down Brampton Road and back. It was their goal to catch the walkers before they reached to Brampton Road tunnel footpath. And a couple of you did, well done.

Well we never go through the tunneled walk way with out a sit off drill. So thats exactly what we did!! With legs once more jellyfied it was time to head back to finish for the evening. Thanks so much everyone for coming along, chatting and helping to keep our local Goodgym area looking fab. You are all awesome!!

See you all next week.........
