Drizzle Drizzle Drizzle, that was yesterday weather forecast from 18:00 to 20:00.

Rainy days like this tempt us to stay indoors, snuggled up with a warm blanket and a good book. But what if we are told (by the radio, according to Edel) that there are incredible benefits to be gained by heading out into the rain for a workout? That's right – exercising in the rain can be a refreshing and invigorating experience that offers unique advantages for both your body and mind. Exercising in the rain can be a mood-enhancing experience, as the rhythmic sound of raindrops and the coolness on your skin create a calming effect.

And with this in mind, six brave GoodGym-ers joined yesterday GoodGym’s group run session with a double community mission in Hanover and Elm Grove ward. We helped Simon with painting over graffiti at the Phoenix Community Centre and nearly former pub, and others joined Cllr Tim for some litter picking and weeding action close to Wellington Road.

It was certainly a mood- and ward-enhancing experience!
