Hello Monday and hello summer nights!

It was so lovely to meet up on a warm and sunny evening albeit in a small group this evening, I’m guessing due to there being a very important football match taking place at the same time up the road! We had a catch up then headed to the Cycle Hub to meet up with Anthony who was running late. We talked about how good it was to have runners, walkers and cyclists along for the session for the first time in a while. Conversation then turned to swimming and whether or not swimming along from Ouseburn would be in any way good for your health.

We followed the GoodGym Litter Pick Bingo grid again tonight, splitting into two groups of running and walking and ticking off pretty much everything except nappies, Nestle chocolate wrappers and beer bottles - in Newcastle- I know, we were stunned too!

I set up a mini running workout circuit to finish off, switching between shuttle runs, step ups and ladder drills to get the legs burning! The backdrop of the Tyne on a clear evening made it the most scenic fitness session we’ve ever done.

It was a great start to the week and collecting five bags of rubbish shows we really made a difference.

We are back tomorrow with a rare Tuesday session as we help out Newcastle Eagles foundation with some gardening. Hope you can join us for that one too.
