A surprisingly warm Wednesday GoodGym goodness but with our esteemed leader on his holidays it needed two of us to lead this weeks run.

15 of us shared the Aquatics Centre with the Para Swimmers.....couple of the team managed to bypass security and head to the changing rooms......

Brahma was the subject of this weeks random weekly question......What do you like most about Brahma....his positivity,his hairline,how he pronounces Muyiwa!,always remembers races we are taking part in,spice bros,free stuff and an all round bloody nice bloke!!!

A nice warm up from Kevin and of course a brilliant H&S talk.

Tonight we headed down the River Lea to Cody Dock a hidden gem in East London.

As usual Simon had a list of things for us to complete in preparation for there #openhouse event 21/22 September. Half the team had the fun task of erecting two large gazebos while the rest of the team used an amazing amount of elbow grease to rub down a couple of picnic benches and finished them off with a good coat of oil.

You can come and check out our sanding work and even help out at the event as part of #GG10 which also happens to be Kevin birthday. Details will be on website soon.

We said our goodbyes to Simon and headed off into the darkness and after a good stretch we got to sample an award winning cake thanks to Eugene I can confirm it was delicious and the night was finished off with a trip to the pub....crisps and orange juice a plenty.....but we also had chips!!!

Normal service will be resumed next week as Brahma is back from his holiday.
