Not that anyone needs a reminder that the festive season is about to go into OVERDRIVE, the Brighton Santa Bus was in town!

Not to be distracted, ten Brighton Goodgymers met, pleased by the milder but wetter weather. A brief, but uphill, run to the Brigton Community Kitchen where we met Jo who runs the Social Enterprise. The Community Kitchen run a variety of cooking classes to the general public, from curries and dim sum to cakes and guides to nutrition. The money made from these classes go on to fund sessions for those who need life skills to provide a means of supporting themselves.

As always, Jo was very organised with a list of jobs for us to do including; sorting through cupboards and drawers and sanitsing EVERYTHING! With the tunes playing we got a lot done in 40 minutes including a last scramble to sort the measuring spoons and cups (which a few Goodgymers hadn't come across before!)

With the kitchen 99.9% bug free we jogged down to the seafront only to be beaten back by the wind and rain! A quick diversion back in land we set up for our fitness session. For those who missed it, but don't want to miss out we did; 10 step ups (5 on each leg) to improve our glutes, 10 tricep dips to improve our triceps (obvs) and 10 V crunches to improve our core.

Three rounds completed we made our way back to where we started, waving each other off as we went on our ways home.
