Back to the pharmacy

Report written by Rachel White

Pharmacy had forgotten to send the right items and so I retraced my steps so the drop off was complete. Managed to avoid the hailstones fortunately!

A run down memory lane

Wed 17 Feb
Report written by Mark Barun

What a great way to get out without actually going

I felt like I was back on the run in the old stomping ground with some of the places mentioned and photos sent so thanks to all who took part.

We had Landmarks where we hopped the border to help out on the Richmond fringes and met there to deliver flyers at a Christmas promotion for Elleray hall - I rememebr it well.

My Bushy park photo where we had a few fitness sessions but I remember most for the dark run or two we had in there as a group, particularly the last ever where it poured and we got sooo soaked and muddy

And then Luke kindly sent it some photos too of Lovelace Road area / Wayside with so many memories there but a big one is the reenactment of the old Beatles photo at a level crossing in our GG shirts - GOOD times and great momories.

More were mentioned too like the phone boxes down Old London Road but none dared to mention the time we ran 11 point something km's on the hottest day of the year ha ha

Was great running down memory lane with you all - thanks for taking part

Back Up Plan

Sun 28 Feb 19:00 pm

Non back breaking TLC sesh

I've lost count how many have said they are experiencing some back ailment or can feel poor posture creeping in from a rickety work environment and more

These exercises are not the cure by any means. You may need to consider daily, your seating arrangements or lifting methods and much more (see a guru perhaps) but they may help offset some of the loads and will feel good should you have a healthy spine to begin with.

Go slowly keep it smooth and non jerky and try to make it a frequent routine in your week. Daily is good ; - )

As with many of the training ideas or health and fitness sessions - to do just once seems little point so for the sake of dates I will keep open until the end of the month as a listing but get busy with these now and beyond.

Here's the link https://youtu.be/8OiPaJxzZC8 - Enjoy

Strength plan for feet and ankles

Sun 28 Feb 18:45 pm

Get more out of those pins!

We put heaps of force through our body when we exercise and many runners will have had some experience of pain and injury during their training days.

I know some at GG and other clients I have trained have expressed the frustration and pain off shin splints etc so as part of a fitness routine I have put together a few ideas here that can help prevent it as well as assist with rehab on the way out of it.

These are not to guarantee that bouts of injury will never happen again, but they are to help strengthen those muscles that we take for granted every time we lace up and to help offset injury probability.

In most cases such injuries and pains are likely be from too much too soon, lack of recovery from bigger sessions as well as gait and trainer issues so if you are prone to or experiencing injury do consult a physio or medic first and build up slowly with the least intense methods first.

Session can be found here https://youtu.be/3aotfg-E120

You probably know but just a reminder …doing these once or twice will not set you up for stronger conditioned lower legs for life. They need to be incorporated into a regular pattern of activity. Let’s keep this one live for February and aim for aspects of the plan at least twice a week

Let me know if you have any questions ; - )
