13 a-mazing Goodgymmers defied the hordes of football fans flocking down the High Road to run and help a local park to look spic-and-span!

Kudos corner (to be read to the tune of Shaft) *

Who's the lovely young man

That's a deed machine to all the Goodgyms? (K!)

You're damn right

Who is the man that would run everywhere for a deed, man? (K!)

Can ya dig it?

Who's the cat that won't cop out when there's deeds all about? (K)

Right on

You see this cat K is a badgym mother (Don't you doubt it)

But I'm talkin' about K (Then we can dig it)

He's not a complicated man but no one understands him fully but his fam (GGH)*

Happy 50th Deed, K <3

Swept Off Our Feet By Kapil's 50 Deeds

We congregated at HQ to the news that Kapil had snuck under the cover of the January Challenge and reached the 50 deeds mark, much to his trainer's surprise who expected this momentous occasion to still be a good month away.

Never one to miss a step, this trainer jumped into action and allowed Kapil to lead our warm up with one of his favourite games: the burpee game. Such is the measure of the K man.

When everyone's patience and good spirits had reached breaking point at Kapil's Energiser-bunny-burpeeness, we set off for a good 3kish run. Today's theme: Avoid the Spurs fans walking down the High Road. Reader, we weren't very successful.

No matter, before you knew it, Laura from Friends of Tottenham Green was welcoming us with open arms, good vibes, and plenty of fun tools.

We divided into three teams: the dandies, the litter-busters, and the be-leafers.

The dandies rained upon the dandelions on the Green's flowerbeds with such gusto and force that it looked like they were trying to dig their way to the other side of the world.

The litter-busters left the green looking gorgeous and litter-free, and even managed to pick all rubbish from under the benches in the park. Over and beyond the call of duty.

The be-leafers put their backs into a nice fun task. They first moved a wooden framed across the park and then they proceeded to fill it up with the leaves they collected from a so-far untouched section of the Green this winter. Reader, they were like cyborg good deeders sent from the future with a ruthless mission in mind. And they'll be back, no doubt.

We then bid Laura farewell and had a rather easy and in no way taxing fitness session. Our very own Special K loved the plyometric frog jumps in particular.

Having worked up an appetite, we forewent the second half of our run and instead dug deep into Kapil's well earned cake.

A good night was had by all, I believe.

Join us next week! Brand new task, fun new start location!

Boom!

What a wonderful report dedicated to our very own K Man. 50 K Deeds, in so little time. The black T Shirt will be worn well. K can dig it, weed it, move and shake it! Haringey Highs.
Thanks E., a fitting celebration to a crispy K.
