Our burgeoning new Goodgym Barnet run leader Antonio led the session for new starters. We gathered at Stephens House Gardens which is the jewel in the crown of Finchley. It is a charitable trust that relies on volunteers, including GoodGym. Beautiful gardens and café.

It was a chilly morning, so we started off with a gentle jog to warm up then Antonio took over the session in a sheltered pathway.

Antonio beautifully demonstrated some warmup exercises and then initiated a running session with sprints.

We then ran on to deliver leaflets from the Phoenix Cinema to local houses in the area. Another charitable trust that we like to try and help and hosts our Tuesday sessions. We did a warm down in the café with some refreshments to aid our weary limbs. look forward to all the carrot cake, Antonio!

Thanks for coming running and doing some good - I hope we ticked all the boxes.
