The sun came out to greet the 30 strong GoodGym team as we headed up the hill to the lovely Lynwood Gardens. After a short run we were greeted by Magic Martin and the Rad Rob, who look after this green urban oasis.

We split into 3 groups; Team Rob ripped out the unruly roots around the entrance, pruned back the overhanging branches and barrowed the woodchips to top up the paths.

Team Martin, bashed back the bushes to clear the paths and knocked back the nettles in the children’s play area.

The Amazing Annie motivated the masses and led the 3rd group in a fitness session of hill sprints, grape vines, lunges, star jumps and lots more.

After rotating the groups and making sure everyone got a good workout, we said goodbye to Martin and Rob and headed back to base.

A big shoutout to the Cool Caroline on completing her 150th Good Deed.

Well done to all those with tired legs from the weekend: Kim and Suze for completing a quadrathalon ( that’s a triathlon with a kayak thrown in for good measure) and to the smallparkBIGRUN team for completing a combined 755 kilometres in 24 hours ( that’s like running from Sheffield to Paris and back to London)!

And a big thanks to Annie for helping with tonight’s run and making everyone sweat.
