โ˜” 9 brilliant GoodGymmers braved the rain for our group run tonight. After a (very) quick intro, we ran/walked to Hull Road Park where we met Kristina from the council. We split into two groups, Team Turf and Team Foliage ๐ŸŒบ

๐ŸŒฑ Team Turf were removing a (very) large amount of turf that had been "dumped" on the compost bins and doing wheelbarrow relays to "disperse" it in the woodland area ๐ŸŒฒ

๐ŸŒณMeanwhile, Team Foliage were busy clearing said foliage (mostly bits of Christmas tree but also other generic "greenery and woody bits") from another compost area and again, dispersing it into the woodland ๐ŸŽ„

We could make some lovely Christmas decorations out of this foliage - Barbara.

๐Ÿ’ช It turns out that both jobs involved heavy lifting so we got quite the upper body workout ๐Ÿ‹๏ธ

๐Ÿ‘ After making good inroads into both jobs, we gathered our tools (and soggy selves) together for a walk/run back to base ๐Ÿฅณ

๐Ÿ”ฅSome cool-down stretches and catch ups about other happenings this week followed, and then we parted ways to warm up and dry off ๐Ÿ˜
