Group Fitness Activities
Tonight we were helping maintain a tiny section of cycle path which runs behind the old Durham Ox pub. The Sustrans contact that we were meant to meet at the task had cancelled due to illness at the last minute so our trusty old friend Simon stepped in to bring us all of the tools we required!
We had a wheelie good time
There were several tasks for us to attend to this evening; chopping back overhanging vegetation, picking up litter, and sweeping away the ever-encroaching soil on the path. Pickers, bags, brushes and secateurs were provided for us and we eagerly got stuck into the jobs. By the time we were finished the whole area was far more presentable and far more likely to encourage use by cyclists and pedestrians.
On the return run we took steps to enable us to do some fitness activities... by box jumping, squatting and running up and down several sets of steps. All hopped up on fun, there was a short distance left to run back to the showroom. When we arrived back at base we stretched off all of the key muscles used this evening, heard some announcements (the most pertinent of which was the opportunity to visit the best GG area in the country, BARNSLEY ON WEDNESDAY!!) and popped inside for refreshments.
Cheers folks! See y'all in Barnsley on Wednesday evening for some work in the best park in Yorkshire.
Yes, that was a Sheffield based Pulp pun..
On a beautiful Sheffield evening we were back off to meet MARVELOUS MARIA from Common Ground Community Garden to help with a bit of a spring clean. This time around we took on the below tasks:
- Litter picking
- Painting planters a beautiful sky blue
- Clearing out a basement
- Clearing out a store cupboard
- Filling a skip
Maria was very thankful for the help which will make the spaces a lot easier to use and make storage for other equipment to be used by the surrounding community. The beds looked ace!
On completion of our tasks we used this amazing area for some paired fitness where one person would take on an exercise whilst their partner did 2 laps of the 'Stonehenge Circle' before tagging their partner to swap over. This weeks exercises included:
- Planks (the exercise, not the people)
- Press Ups
- Squat Jumps
Until next time, happy running :)
It's time for a spring tidy at the Community Garden to help make the space really welcoming to local families all summer.
We'll be meeting MARVELOUS MARIA on site to talk us through the tasks.
We'll be helping with: - Litter picking - Painting raised beds - Weeding and garden maintenance
Please do bring your own gloves with you so we can get gloved up on arrival and get stuck straight in!
