Hooray! It was the first dry GoodGym Brum of 2020! Yep, slightly cold, but none of the wet stuff!

Tonight we welcomed Cherry and Andy from the recently started GG Warwick. It was great to meet you both and I hope you enjoyed the run. Fiona did the back marker job and we got going armed with oranges and bananas. We also had cards detailing SIFA Fireside’s facilities to give out to the homeless. We ran around the city centre, giving out our goodies and having a chat with the homeless.

Once we were literally ‘fruitless’ we headed to St Paul’s Square for a circuit workout. The group started off with press ups on the benches, Ben doing a great job. Next was squat jumps, Cherry showed some great form. Next was high knees running, Andy putting in a great knee drive, then finally it was some heart racing tuck jumps, Rahul put in some great effort on these. Then that wasn’t quite it, the group finished off with the leg trembling wall squat, for a whole 75 seconds!

Thankfully after all that there was only a few minutes of running to do back to 1000 Trades.

Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
