We just fish we had more time
14 GoodGymers made their way 4.0km to help the Wildfowl and wetlands trust - Transforming Slough in Slough.
- Monday, 24th of September 2018
- Led by Manjit Birk
Three new runners joined us today on a lovely task with www.wwt.org.uk. A warm welcome to Sara, James and Danielle Sara even did a 10km run this morning! Well done Sara for your double dose of running today... and Super James ran all the way from home (5km run!) to join us...
So we have 3 missions on the system awaiting eager runners to go do the deed. One is scheduled to take place in October... If you've had your docs checked and verified please do sign up for one of these missions
After our usual welcome brief and warm up drills we set off on a short 1km run to meet our task owner Claire..
When it rains it pours...
Claire gave us our task brief... we were to label the drains with yellow fish plaque signs... these indicate that no litter or waste products can go down them as these drains lead straight out to the streams and rivers...Rain water only...
We divided into three groups and each group went on their merry way to get plaquing
Blow off Some Stream
The groups had great fun with the gun! Glue gun that is.... even though Claire had pre warned us how sticky the black glue was... it didn't stop us from getting it on our hands! But after cleaning ourselves up we managed to reel ourselves in and crack on with the task!
Fishing for Compliments
Twenty-Five minutes later all the plaques were in position! Great team work and a speedy task done! Nine weeks in and we are getting quite good at this now!
Run out of Stream
On our return run we divided into two groups.. Team Sara took the shorter distance back, with Lorraine taking photo evidence of the extra lunges and squats they had to do...
The remaining team led by James, ran a longer route back. We covered a total distance of 4km there and back
Drink like a Fish at our Social
OK! I'll stop with the puns now!
Thanks to Michelle for suggesting we have a social ( or two!)... and as we are super organised we have already booked the Christmas Drinks Do
** FRIDAY 30th NOVEMBER @ THE CORNER HOUSE, WINDSOR @ 19:30 till late**
As a celebration for the completion of the Slough Half Marathon we will also have a drinks catch up after the Monday session on Monday 15th October at The Salt Hill Activity Centre ( bar in the bowling alley)
Everyone is Welcome
Next weeks run is a long un... 8km total run to Ryvers School for a garden/play area tidy up...
Have a great week everyone and hope to see you next week
