The weather has definitely taken a turn for the cold 🥶 so we started our run talking about our favourite way to get warm. We had responses from press-ups to hot baths! Only one of those would work on a GoodGym group run. 😉

Thankfully we managed to keep pretty warm, as we ran up through the park, past some disturbing Lightopia creatures and did our task at Upper Norwood Library Hub.

Painting the fence...

Our equipment was left out for us (hence the pun - thanks Ian!), although we were a little limited with a small pot of paint, and some brushes which were too big to fit in! Luckily we managed to make it work and we got through the paint, although we'll definitely need another trip in future to finish off!

Bagging the leaves...

Daniel from the Library had also left out some bags in case we had time to collect some leaves - and we did - 5 bagsful I believe!

We wrapped up with a little wall-sit (and one emphasising great technique... see pics) and ran back down the hill!

  • Nice one guys! * Great running from all but especially Katy who'd jogged up from Lambeth and Ian who'd already been for a run earlier! And thanks Kat for the armbands!!
