Night of the 10k PB's 2018
Catch up with all the action from the hottest 10k running event of the year
We will be running 5-7k to Oasis Foundry School to help out in their wildlife area. We will be meeting at the school at 6.25pmso if you want to meet at the task the postcode is B18 4LP.
Tonight we had Eve joining us for the first time at a rather cold GG Brum. It was also lovely to see some old faces back for a first time in a while :)
We set off to the canal, armed with our litter pickers. Once on the canal we split into two groups, with plenty of litter to pick. One of the groups even found some socks, hence the pun! Once done we put the full bags of rubbish into a nearby skip and David took us back to St Paul's Square.
Once at the square it was fitness sess time! Tonight's challenge was two lots of 6 min Fartlek efforts with 1 minute rest. The sess was a mix of 10 second, 20 second, 30, 40 and 1 minute efforts. Everyone worked well. Tom, Liam and Danny led the way. Eve put in a sterling effort on her first session (apparently her first fartlek session since she was 12!) Nadia ran fantastically with her bag on her back, James and Laura put in their usual good shift. Once done, Liam took the selfie and we headed back to 1000 Trades.
It was great to welcome back a few old faces back to GG Brum tonight and Mark came along for the first time.
Unfortunately our task was cancelled, however no problem Liam took us on a brand new running route! It was about 5k, taking us back to St Paul's Square were the group took part in a fitness session. The sess included, press ups, squat jumps, high knees and reverse dips, everyone working well. Mark showing some great newbie form and George and Morwenna pushed each other along.
Once done we headed back to 1000 Trades, so despite no task, we ran about 5.4k and did a circuit for good measure! Great work everyone!
