Claire T, GoodGym Brent's resident yoga teacher extraordinaire, got us loosened up with a brilliant "happy hips for runners" stretching session. Claire expertly guided us through a series of stretches (with variations for different level of flexibility) all designed to loosen and strengthen the muscles around your hips which is often where runners get 'niggles'. A great way to start the week and some handy stretches to go back to as a warm up/warm down on these cold winter days! Thanks Claire!
This evening the fabulous four met outside the Brent Mencap offices. Ian arrived and explained the task for the evening. The task was to transfer a mountain of braches into a bin. Samina, Sabina and Lee set to work breaking the branches into smaller pieces. Meanwhile, Liz moved the branches into the bin. The bin frequently appeared full, but Ian demonstrated that by climbing into the bin, the branches would compact further. Liz followed, taking her turn to climb into the bin and stamp on the branches. The mountain was promptly transformed into a molehill!! The bin was full to bursting!
Only one task remained, a trip to Papagayo to feed and water the workers!
Hopefully, see you again soon, once the bin has been emptied!
