What a start to the week.

There we were in picturesque, spacious Meath Gardens, with the blue, blue sky; the refreshing breeze and the best company in town.

Tonight's team of 15 was a cheerful one. We took great delight in welcoming Leona​ to her first training session; said hello to familiar faces, some of whom had joined from the 6pm task at Hollybush Gardens.

And then the work began.

We whizzed through 50 minutes of:

  • Laps and running drills, ranging from hip mobility to knee strike; hamstring-activators and stride lengths.
  • Standing core work, focusing on recruiting those deep abdominals, glutes, and balance skills.
  • Floor work focusing on abs; rotator cuff muscles, glutes - and more core stability.
  • The greyhound-and-hare game, helping to tick those speedwork boxes.
  • Much-needed stretching.

And then that, as they say, was a wrap.

We dispersed promptly, into the setting sun, bidding one another farewell, and looking forward to next week. So, until then!

If you have any questions, queries about tonight's session - or if you're new and thinking of joining - just drop our Area Activator Laura a line, at We'd love to see you at a Monday night session soon!
