Tonight our task with the Jewellery Quarter trust had unfortunately been cancelled, due to Covid isolation, but don't worry it has been organised in a few weeks!

We had Mel join us for the first time tonight, it's great to have you on board.

With no task, thats no problem, we headed to our adopted part of the canal to blast a specific troublesome spot we had noticed last week. We were joined by walkers Nadia and Danny and Matt nipped back to his flat to grab some bin bags.

Before all that though, the group did some press ups and wall squats!

We got 4 full bags of rubbish from our litter blast, so we walked up to Aston Lock to drop them off for our friends at the Canal and River Trust before running back.

Once we got to St Paul's Square we hit a good, hard interval session, including four tough reps. Everyone working hard, just check out the pics of the sprint finish on the last rep!

Once done, thankfully the group just had a few minutes of running to do to get back to 1000 Trades!
