Wow, another great turnout tonight, you guys are just awesome. Last night Bexley Goodgym were delivering leaflets for the Greenwich and Bexley Hospice advertising their up and coming Big Bike Ride which a few of us have already signed up for.

Lasts nights fitness session was all in the hands of the Goodgmers. It was leg night!! Everyone formed a circle and i handed a big dice to number one in the circle. The aim was to throw the dice into the middle of the circle and what ever number it landed on was the amount of squats we had to do. Sounds easy. Not when theres twelve of you in the circle and the dice never rolled under the number three!!!!!

With heart rates up and legs definitely warmed up we split into two groups. The fast guys were heading out on the longer route clockwise whilst the slower / walkers were heading out anti clockwise eventually all meeting up back at Crooklog for the finish. For those of you thinking that leaflet dropping is an easy run, think again. You cover more mileage than you think. There's loads of stops and starts, mixed in with faster, then slower running speeds. It really does turn into quite a good run session without really realizing it.

FOR THOSE OF YOU THINKING THAT LEAFLET DROPPING IS AN EASY RUN, THINK AGAIN..............

By five passed eight the slow runners / walking team were on their way back to base camp. It was at this point reality kicked in. Yep, no matter how much we had tried to wish it away the dark evenings have finally arrived. For next weeks run we are definitely going to have to blow the dust and cobwebs off our head torches.

FOR NEXT WEEKS RUN WE ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO HAVE TO BLOW THE DUST AND COBWEBS OFF OUR HEAD TORCHES

Before i end this weeks run report i would like to thank everyone for joining us every Monday evening. I know it sets me up for the week ahead. I also want to give a special shout out to the guys from Bexley Mencap who have been joining us every Monday. You guys are smashing it!!!!!! WELL DONE.

Well sadly thats it for another week. Next weeks task is the Welling Library clean up so all hands on deck please ;-) Have an awesome week..........
