Don’t leaflet us this way

Check out those photos! Summer is here!
On another lovely GoodGym evening, we gathered at our base and caught up with some GG OGs- Maddy and Elliot, who we havent seen at a GoodGym group run since pre-pandemic days! It was so lovely to catch up and show off our new base. We had a quick warm up and a review of our plan which Louise had handily written on a post-it note, ever the most efficient member of the group (me? I was winging it). Louise was leading the runners while I was walking with Michael as we headed off on part two of our big leaflet drop for Recyke Y Bike.
Tonight we were spreading the word about the Bike Book Swap event in the Byker area, and we had a list of streets we wanted to tackle. Byker can be a bit of a maze but we managed to stay on task and for the perhaps first time at a leafleting task ever, we didn’t lose Michael!
Streets quickly ticked off and mission accomplished, we met back up at Harbottle Park for a fitness session, briefly joined by a very friendly dog called Barney who was very interested in what we were doing. He put the good boy in GoodGym. A progression run got hearts and legs pumping and most importantly gave us some brilliant photos for this report! We agreed on return that tonight had lifted what had felt like the most Mondayest of Mondays- the power of GoodGym.
Richard is leading a session next Monday at Stepney Bank Stables, hope you can join in with more good stuff.
