Branching Out to Heeley

Mon 17 Jan
Report written by Tom Mutton

Icey Icey Baby! After a beautiful morning the temps took a dive up north, so we were keen to get going tonight! After a quick count up and group photo we got on our way past the closed footpaths and over obstacles. We even took in some 'suicide sprints' and some extended loops in order to keep us all together on the way there.

Once at the park we met with our mate Parky Rob who gave us the brief for the nights task which was to cut back the hedges on the triangular section of parkland on Midhill Road.

We birfurcated into 3 teams to manage the areas most effectively and got straight to it, cutting back, filling and unloading tonne bags all with happy faces!

Once time was up, we downed tools and headed to the U-Mix centre for a little look at technique.

We took to the sprint track and focused on lifting our heels up into the underneath of our bums to mimic good technique and get some nice kinesthetic feedback to refer us back to in our own future runs. We also got three sets of squat jumps in to get some conditioning and took a little look at good squat technique also.

Once home we stretched off and headed inside for drinks and to find out more about the councils consultation and plans for active leisure - Find out more below:

Lock Up, Lock Down, Round & Round

Mon 10 Jan
Report written by Tom Mutton

What a turn out!

Great to see so many people out at the start of the year.

Big welcome to Rose who came along to her first group run, hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more soon Rose!

Also, big congrats to Curly Cat for reaching her 50th good deed, she had the honor of donning the now customary bow tie that she wore with poise and prestiege.

This weeks task took us through some more urban environments and even past a car crash as we were running (we do like to turn heads). Nice one to Steve and Eugen for being witnesses/peace keepers!

We met with Sustrans Simon at his lock up where the tools we get to use on the regular are stored ready for our and other Sustrans volunteer activities take place. Simon thought it would be a great idea to thank the local community for hosting the tools their by clearing up a bit of the surrounding area. So we got to it, collecting much rubbish and some gems such as a £20 note which will be donated by Simon to Sustrans and also some questionable looking dools - see photos...

We also helped assemble a new bicycle trailer for other Sustrans volunteers to use to help upkeep the network and made a start assembling some storage shelves for the lock up.

After downing tools and thanking Simon we took in Church/Lecture theater to do some paired activity where one person would run around the church whilst the partner got 10 squats in. 2 rounds of this each and we headed home for stretches and drinks at the Showroom.

Until next week, happy running! :)

As a thanks to the local community for hosting them there and to the council for providing the lockup, we will be doing a clean-up around the area to ensure relationships are kept well and SUSTRANS still have a good place to store all of their tools that we use regularly in the city.

Power to the peoples park

Mon 13 Dec
Report written by Tom Mutton

What a wet one! It was that kind of wet that's a wall of wetness!

We didn't let it dampen our spirits though!

We met our mate Rob the Parky for our last group run of the year!

With the football being canceled there was a last minute change of location and we were back at our good friend the wood chip pile for another wood chip spreading session.

We filled countless gg themed red buckets with wet wood chip and carried them up hill to Rob who was spreading it around the big boulder.

On the way back we made a stop at the U Mix centre for a couple of rounds of paired workouts featuring knee/leg lifts and step up/squats.

Back at base we got stretched off and headed inside for food drink and chats of pizza making technique, Sheffield top food spots ans birthday throw downs! Happy Birthday for 2mo Celine!
