Phew- we made it! Our last GoodGym session of the year done and what a perfect blue sky morning for the task.

Anna ran to meet us today, Beth cycled, and Paul, Louise and I arrived fresh from Town Moor parkrun - Louise quickly changing into full Mrs Claus gear on the way for the occasion!!

It was one of my personal favourite tasks today with the brilliant Ouseburn Trust- clearing and edging the paths to make them safer and wider for pedestrians. It is a brilliant workout and you can definitely look back and see the impact you're making as you go along. Check the before and after photos! Much scraping, brushing and chatting made the time fly by and soon it was fitness session time- 'the five exercises of Christmas' was on the cards today which involved squatting, spinning and some very impressive tuck-jumping!

That's it for GoodGym Newcastle in 2023. We are back on January 3rd and hope to see you soon.
