We had a lovely bunch this evening for a run, a good deed and even a bit of yoga!

We had a quick warm up in the park before making our way to St John's the Evangelist, a church with some big old wooden struts holding it up 😬 and also a lovely little 'meadow' out the side. It was an uphill run, but we managed it, partly distracting ourselves by talking about our lunch/dinner plans (apparently 5pm is too early for dinner?!)

When we arrived Helen showed us our task - bagging up a load of compost for it to be sieved to get the good stuff.

A Stick-y Situation

The challenge was to avoid bagging the sticks and twigs which were pretty well dispersed throughout the compost heap. And not forgetting a load of rubbish which made it's way in too.

After a solid 40 or so minutes, we called it a day having filled a lot of bags.

We then had a quick jog back to the park, for a lovely, relaxing yoga session with Emma, who took us through various positions which gave us a good stretch after our run - Thanks Emma!

And great running and shovelling and forking everyone!

Lovely to meet you all and hopefully see you again soon!

Next week there isn't a group run but we do have a Community Mission (same kinda thing but you meet there) on Tuesday for Anerley Town Hall and the Wednesday after that we may be lucky enough to go in the secret garden in CP Park!
