What's your favourite post run snack? In Hounslow we love all forms of avocado on toast, pizza, peanut butter with and without banana, and...beer.
We started our run last night with this highly important discussion, before heading over to Chiswick House and Garden, a charity organisation which keeps the grounds beautiful and open to the public all year round.
Our job last night was trimming off the new shoots on the huge trees that line the main avenue. Or, if you're fancy, like us, the 'epicormic' growth. We'll be on Ground Force before you know it!
We relished the use of the very fancy secateurs which blow the usual tools we have to use out of the water, whilst learning about the life cycle of the ladybird and weevil, and hearing about everybody's amazing running, from parkrun right up to marathon.
After 45 minutes of work the trees looked smart and de-epicormiced so we posed for a beautifully lit photograph thanks to gardener Chris' excellent floodlights. Then it was over to Turnham Green for a fitness session that really saw us test those ABCs -agility, balance and coordination. Sorry about all the reverse lunges!
Next week we're back at Gunnersbury Park, so hope to see you there! Have a lovely rest of the week with some very happy running.
Today it seemed that everyone wanted a piece of Mrs M at the same time - just as I arrived, her phone rang and a neighbour had also stopped by for a chat. After handling her call, Mrs M came back to the door to check through her list then sent me on my way. Tesco yielded most of the goods, except for broccoli and brioche rolls - Sainsbury’s came to my rescue here! And back I went to Mrs M with everything ticked off her list. We had a quick chat before I left… Mrs M still has no drinking water, but she tells me that someone will be coming to fix it soon (at last!) I can’t wait - carrying 12 litres of water every week is putting a lot of strain on her shopping trolley; I’ve been fearing it will give up on me one day!!
