Last night 13 runners joined our Fitness & Social session in the rain!

It was my last session before moving house and relocating to Norwich! So in order to see each other in person safely, we held our session in a large open area in Burgess Park keeping to a safe distance in groups of 6!

The exercise theme I'd chosen this week was 15-1. We worked our way through 15 exercises starting with 15 reps for the first exercise, and finishing with 1 rep for the last exercise...a 1 minute plank!

Despite the rain coming down we managed to find shelter under some large trees, and with a few added layers we enjoyed a drink and a chance to catch up and say goodbye - in person!

Thanks so much to everyone for joining the session, it was so lovely to see you all and give you a wave or elbow pump! Although it is always sad saying goodbye, its much nicer knowing we will still continue to see each in our weekly online fitness sessions. And as soon as it is a safe to run in groups and races again, I will be back to visit and see as many of you possible!

See you next week in my new house!!
