Another Wednesday in the heatwave. We welcomed three new faces to the crew, Chloe, Russel and Nacho. The muscular crossfit trio were a fine addition to our arsenal, physically and vibe wise. We discussed "if you could either fly or be invisible, which one would you pick?" Almost a unanimous decision on flying, nip back to NZ, go travelling etc. Some token invisibility answers in there too, but it would be a power hard not to abuse. In hindsight it's interesting to hear that no one would fight crime or save the world "I could shave 20mins getting to work" is more the response! Here's the light-hearted podcast I listened to on it.
Team bolstered by three at Nomadic Gardens, we couldn't find Jimmy but Sharon (not ours for once), came to the rescue. She instructed us to move about forty tires... clearly after seeing the crossfitters. Then lay some mulch down and get some plants in the ground. Considering we only started at 730pm after waiting around I think that's a very respectable half hour of volunteering. Top work one and all.
A chosen few executed a 'sandwhich session' on the way back, a mixture of grumbles and excitement preceded the interval, but when the whistle went you lot flew. I like these sessions as they hold you accountable, in order to nail that last rep you need to exercise pace management early on. Everyone smashed it, showcasing a well executed speed interval for east London onlookers.
Next week Abbey Gardens need our help, sign up here to help this gem of community garden.
