A massive well done to everyone tonight, we’re halfway there to a newly painted charity shop!

Tonight’s task involved running to Age UK’s charity shop and livening the place up with a fresh coat of paint. Upon arrival Veronica had everything ready for us so we could get stuck in straight away!

Once we had painted the two walls, we took the obligatory team photo to show off our hard work, along with all the wonderful hats for sale in the shop! Then it was off to Tudor Grange Park for a pyramid session. This involves running hard for increasing intervals (from 30 seconds to 1 minute) with 30 seconds rest in between. Everyone pushed themselves and showed good commitment to the session.

It’s all about controlling efforts and spreading your energy evenly over a set time, just like you would in a perfect race setting.

Once we got our breaths back, it was time for a short run back to base followed by a cool down stretch.

Great to see some regular faces on our Wednesday nights and congratulations to Maya on her first GoodGym Solihull run.

See you all next week for more painting with Age UK!
