The heat got to our 10 Goodgymmers last night as they went wild at the meadow in Lordship Rec in a thistley frenzy.

Big Shout...

...to everyone doing the Camino Ultra London race on Saturday - not least our very own Ultra GGHers <3 Win it for us, team!

Thistle Be A Day They Won't Forget

Caroline from the Friends of Lordship Rec welcomed us with open arms and clear, succinct instructions - the thistles were taking over the meadows and the prickly twits needed to be shown who's boss.

Before you could say 'we gotta save them Lady's Bedstraws', our goodgymmers had jumped into the meadows in the shadow of the always beautiful Broadwater Farm Estate and started handing out life lessons on the circle of life to the thistles.

In a warm evening when Goodgym got desperately close to tipping over the 250,000 Good Deeds mark, our GGH Fam pulled well into the evening without a care in the world. Thorny On Main Indeed.

Conversation ranged from the undeniable superiority of bocadillo as a long distance nutritional aid, to our resident GGH doctor diagnosing a few lazy asses. That's the medical term and I'm sticking with it. Just don't ask about how she conducted the physical.

We even had time to stop and glare at a rival running group who kept doing laps around us. Gramps considered briefly leading a group to introduce them to the circle of life curriculum we had been applying to the thistles all evening, but we remembered ourselves and instead waved at them. We'll be back before you know it :)

We have an action packed week coming up: Traid on Monday at 6 and then Luos on Wednesday at 7. You should definitely join us.

Love the medical reference to the A- Team. Who was diagnosed with the condition? And not in the Good Gym remit to conduct physicals! My community work only extends so far! Good luck to our Ultra GoodGymers.
