☔ 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 🌺
🌱 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 🌲
🌳Meanwhile, 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 🎄
We could make some lovely Christmas decorations out of this foliage - Barbara.
💪 It turns out that both jobs involved heavy lifting so we got quite the upper body workout 🏋️
👍 After making good inroads into both jobs, we gathered our tools (and soggy selves) together for a walk/run back to base 🥳
🔥Some cool-down stretches and catch ups about other happenings this week followed, and then we parted ways to warm up and dry off 😁
