The NewYear kicked off at Longcroft with an indoor session.
Activities included 20 minutes circuit training (greeted with groans at the onset but enthusiastically completed by all) to blow away the Christmas cobwebs.
A Route Choice exercise followed, the aim was to draw different possibilities for one particular leg and then describe the selected route in detail. The exercise can be seen by clicking here, which way would you have gone? The technical training followed with compass practise and selecting the correct direction. A pictorial control description card was at the correct point, this had to be interpreted correctly before the leg was complete.
The final activity was a relay with teams running into the gym, placing two markers in the correct position and returning to their partner, who then had to collect the markers and move them to the next position. The winning pair, signalled by a lot of whooping and a hollering, were Rosie and Yasmin.
I am aiming to alternate weekly between indoor and outdoor activities, so next week (Jan 17th) be prepared for outdoors.
Remember new members always welcome. Meet Longcroft (Upper) School, Girls Gym 6:30pm (to 8pm).
