Ten tough goodgym runners braved the storms to deliver leaflets for local charities. We were promoting our host the Phoenix cinema and a local park (The friends of Cherry tree woods) We gathered and chatted about Septembers good deeds. Rob did a phenomenal 17 good deeds, Rupesh 8, Jody 7, Vicki 6 Charlotte and Laura 5 and well done Laura for completing her first half Marathon. also well done to Julian on joining us! Julian Give them a cheer! The rain had dissipated and it looked like we might get lucky with our task and run. We numbered up, declared our favourite Album, warmed up and headed off into the drizzle. We soon started delivering leaflets and then the rain intensified! It was difficult to keep the flyers dry so after delivering a reasonable number we started to head back. Despite the conditions and being totally sodden everyone was up for a little running (swim) exercise in a nearby cul-de-sac.(pool) In pairs we split and ran in opposite directions around the road meeting and then paddling back.. sorry running back to our starting positions. We did four sets of running of various intensities and styles.( breast stroke being the most popular.) It was a short run back to the Phoenix and a quick wet chill down. There seemed a consensus that it was actually quite fun running in the rain…. its just not very good for the flyers!

Keep doing good and keeping fit!
