It sure was an eventful Adventure this morning on our age 10+ Kids Session.
Running up hills to view points, rock climbing & jumps, birthday girl! and the all important river dip to cool off after a good juju running session..it was all go...go....go..
We started off with warm up drills in the forest, then working on balancing on each legs,then doing some kicking out our legs to the front and holding them for while then to the side ( Kung fu style ) and then behind us trying to pick up sticks as we bend forward.
Then there was some jumping up and down on the spot fast & slow to really warm up our legs & feet!
Running backwards and forwards and going one way and then the other. Once we had warmed up it was speedy into the woods along the trails with JuJu leading and running round trees and obstacles and the kids followed him, it was great fun & everyone was lovely it...
They loved him ;-)
As we headed along the trails, we stopped at a spot with a big rock. JuJu showed the kids how to climb onto the rock and gave them the freedom to do some natural movements when they got to the top. Then followed the sounds to accompany the natural movements, again, lots of laughs and some great climbing!!
Then it was on to the hills….the kids ran up no bother, JuJu showed them the most efficient way of getting up the hill and talked about small steps and upright body. They flew up those hills!! But, there were some who were going too fast and forgot about the rules and
"What happens when you break JuJu rules??"
Press ups, Sit ups or other drills...
there were LOTS of press ups today!! Some kids even want to do more..:-)
Once we got to the top of the hill, the view was so worth the climb!! At the view point where you could see most of the Glendalough mountains with the two lakes & much much more as far as the eyes can see, We sang happy birthday to Anna who was 10 today (a great start to her birthday) ( as seen in our film too ). After that it was all down-hill, fun, fun & more fun. We had a stop on the way to do some shouting as loud as we could…Why? Cause we can!!
Some were very loud & others were high pitched,
With the promise of a river dip to end all the JuJu sessions the kids all ran as fast as they could jumping the roots & stones on the trails down the hills towards the river and once there, they were in for full body dips ( juju style)
NO messing around with this lot!!
It was certainly an Adventure.....we look forward to the next one!
