5 Goodgymmers made their way to Saffron Acres, me and Tommo both cycled each way. Today's task was to support creating a vegetable patch on the heath area to be able to sell produce raising funds for the charity. Again Jack showed us the ropes and off we were filling barrows of wood chip, weeding the area and laying cardboard for the wood chip path. Nick was the photographer today getting some really great action shots.

Amazing to hear what Stu had been upto at the weekend in Wales, winning a hilly trail race in his age category! Weldone Stu you're a true inspiration, he wonders why he was a bit tired for his mid-week run.

We chatted about how Beat the Street is coming back to Leicester, which Tommo is very excited about, last year he did 3000 miles on his bike in the first month and won! Honestly we have some endurance in this team, no wonder we all got the path complete in no time.

We got a bit of a soaking but nothing as bad as Lynn had endured last night on her couch to 5km but she was happy and it was great to see everyone today, smashing work you all really got stuck in.
