A very warm welcome to Brittanyon her first Goodgym outing tonight and a big welcome also to Michelle who was visiting family in Ipswich from Goodgym Sheffield.

So it seems like every Monday night it rains.... this was our 4th consecutive week of rain on a Goodgym Group run, but it didn't put off 8 hardy (and slightly damp) souls tonight as we set off for a relatively short run. With the task venue literally only a stone's throw from our meeting point we headed off in the opposite direction to loop back.

Arriving at the Survivors in Transition centre Fiona had all the window cleaning kit ready and the team set off in small groups to polish and shine the interior windows throughout the building.

The centre is deceptively big with a myraid of rooms but it didn't take long for the windows to be gleaming throughout the building.

With the task complete we headed to the floodlit Waterfront as the rain began to subside, for a circuit session of shuttle runs combined with press ups, lunges, squats and steps before a gentle warm down run back to base.

Next week we have a longer run to Castle Hill Community Centre - all the info and sign up is here
