It’s Reigning 👑 (see what we did there) Windsor GoodGymers!
11 GoodGymers made their way 2.0km to help the Age Concern Windsor in Windsor and Maidenhead.
- Thursday, 4th of January 2024
What could be worse for our Windsor Launch but heavy rain all evening and it was not stopping. Yet it did not put a damper on our plans and we are so happy to have had such a great group ♥️ Special thanks to The Binoy for having the foresight to adding a rain canopy for us to shelter under!
I couldn’t be prouder of all that turned up, from Sheila our 500 (and 1) task Queen to our amazing new starters Rebekah, Helen, Amy and Vincent. It was also great to see Charlotte back for her second session so soon, and of course to see our regulars Jen, Amanda, and Caroline.
So having just showered you all with compliments here is the task report 🤣 I hope it goes down a storm.
We had a quick warm up/ pre run stretch before setting off. The runners went ahead with Amy as run leader. Mandy was the back marker and we had Jen as walk leader although we did consider just swimming!
Once all on site and after a briefing from Rachel at The Spencer Denny Centre, our very first task owner, we all set to work.
It was like water off a ducks back taking down the floods of Christmas decorations, boxing them up and storing them away and also giving some tender loving care to some unhappy house plants with a trim and a splash of water.
Once we were all done we had a quick fun fitness session of the classic squats and lunges (which are great to improve your running) and then also mini circuits using a ball throw as a timer so not all that accurate 🤣 but it was still a cloud pleaser !
Sheila then surprised Amy with an unofficial celebration and treats for Amy’s 300th which was tonight which made tonight extra special. That went down a storm.
We then set off back to the meeting point for final stretch and goodbyes.
Life is all about learning to dance (or run in our case) in the rain and getting soaked with laughter along the way. We certainly did that tonight.
Can't wait to see everyone for more GoodGym fun next Thursday. Click here for all details and to sign up.
