It was a big group of 15 wonderful GoodGymers heading out on the short run to St Christopher's Hospice Shop.

As always at clothes sorting tasks we found a variety of items including: - a medal (congrats on your achievement Jacqueline) - pink sunglasses (modeled by Marta) - a pillow that was also a speaker - handcuffs! - shower curtains - a single shoe

Amongst all those items we also sorted the clothes into piles of mens jackets, shirts, trousers etc and then the same for womens.

It will go down in history as the quickest group run task ever but it made a huge difference to the team at St Christopher's. It would have taken them hours to sort all those clothes.


After our 4min run there, 20min sorting clothes and 4min run back, we tackled the time trial with a difference = Time Trial Fartlek. We used the same route as the time trial but instead of pushing our pace the whole way around, we pushed hard on one side and then slowed our pace until we reached the next side of the square. Excellent work everyone!!
