Yay!! We turned a negative into a positive last night.......... Yeah i know everyone was really looking forward to messing about on the Danson lake, no one more than me. But due to Blue and Green algae humans and dogs were told to steer clear of the water.

With very little time to turn things around i put pen to paper and organized an 'out and back' run followed by a 'fun team fitness' session on our return to Crooklog sports centre. What i love about out and back runs is they give the faster fitter runners a chance to push forward but still keep within the group environment, and the slower newer runners the good feeling that they are also within the group. Remember at Goodgym Bexley no matter what your ability you will never be left behind.

On return to Crooklog it was straight onto the field for team games. This involve sprints with obstacles, burpees, movement and cardio. I told you it was great fun.........


It was during these games that the earlier nights really dawned on me. Wow, 8pm and it was dark. How short has the light night period been. In a couple of weeks it will be back to head lamp running (yay). I secretly love running in the darkness. I just want to finish this write up with a big thank you to everyone that comes and joins us every week. You guys are just awesome. Remember its our Goodgym so if you have any ideas for task, or want any help with your fitness goals i'm here to listen and help.

Next week we've got the important task of getting the "Big Bike Ride" Leaflets distributed locally. It going to have to be a team competition event so make sure you sign up and join us for another fun filled Goodgym run.

Nice work turning things round Tim. I was stunned at how quickly it went dark last night, I had people digging in the dark towards the end, not great! Head-torch time already!
