Welcome GoodGym Crewe welcomed another new recruit this evening – the lovely Emily It was great to welcome you to GoodGym Emily – we hope you enjoyed your very first group task and we hope to see you back next week (and the week after, and the week after that and the week after that and………….. ;-)

Kudos Well done to everyone who took part in the Alsager 5 last weekend. Great to see so many of you pop up on my Strava having achieved cracking times and PBs. Well done everyone! And again, thank you to John, Dan and Chris for putting themselves forwards to be Taskforce members. This is something that anyone who has completed 10 or more deeds for GG Crewe can be part of if they wish (with no commitment).

Thank You Thank you to Chris who took on the role of back-marker again and to Maurice who lead the walk this evening and thank you to the weather gods once again for giving us another great evening to run and walk in! ;0)

Tonight’s Task For our warm-up tonight we did a slightly mind bending game – I really don’t know how else to describe it other than, the in, out, left, right game. You need to see it to understand it! Lol! It warmed us up and confused us in equal measure!

With our brains slightly addled, we set off on our walk and run. Once again blessed with good weather, we ran through the streets of Crewe with our sea of red t-shirts our for their weekly airing!

Our task tonight was filling Goody Bags for a local charity called Motherwell who do great work within our local community to support women. They are such a great charity and alongside their services, do many fabulous events, including Women’s Day which is the event we were filling the goody bags for.

We split into 4 groups, each with different tasks. Everyone worked efficiently and quickly, and the job was soon done! Kate from Motherwell said that that task normally falls to her and her daughter and takes them days! Yet again, proof that many hands make light work (team work makes the dream work as they say!). Lots of lovely chatting and getting to know one another better while we were doing the task and I don’t think anyone became victim of a paper cut! :0)

Once all the bags were filled and Kate's car was packed to the rafters, we headed back to base. Our route home took us via the infamous Walthall Street – driving test hill start territory…… and also the perfect place for a few hill reps!! We split into twos and did a few rounds of hill sprints – just to get the heart pumping a little bit more!

Back at base we finished off with our stretches and had a bit of a giggle at Alex’s expense about his lack of balance – sorry Alex!

Another fantastic night with the awesome GoodGym Gang!!

Hope to see you all next week! Have a fab weekend!

Lots of Love, Nicola xxxx
