First of all, we welcomed newcomer David, and then...

Congratulated Chris on reaching his 50th good deed. He's been coming to GoodGym whenever he can for about 2 years, and as he says, "It's not about getting the T-shirts!" ...and he's quite right. Helping the community, along with the social aspect of enjoying like minded people's company is definitely where it's at!

A group run led by me wouldn't be complete without sprints, intervals & hill reps - and that's just what we did to and from the task - turning it into a decent session in the process.

We met Magnificent Martin from Regather at Lynwood Gardens, whereupon we divided into groups and set about spreading mulch on the squelchy paths, clearing ivy from around an area of willow tree saplings & litter picking the area.

We then headed back to base via hill reps & a long sprint up The Moor.

Happy running!
