Tonight GG Brum were focusing on a good running session, though of course first we did a bit of good. We headed around the streets of the Jewellery Quarter armed with a bag and a couple of litter pickers to clear up the streets. Once we had done our good deed we headed back to 1000 Trades to disarm ourselves of litter pickers before heading out on our run.

We ran 2k to Millenium Point, before doing some Fartlek, yep that's a Swedish term meaning 'play with speed'. James and Amy certainly did that, putting in a good shift of 10 minutes, including a mix of different timed efforts from as little as 10 seconds, to really get the legs turning over up to 1 minute, to help build more of that endurance engine! Once done both were pretty understandably tired, so we took a nice easy run back.
