Welcome Another fab turnout tonight and great to welcome new runner, Sasha. We hope you had a great first experience of GoodGym and hope to see you back again soon.
Kudos Huge well done to everyone who took part in the Dales Dash last weekend. Some fantastic personal achievements! Big shout out for Claire who got a course PB as well as being first placed in her age category. Big Kudos to Alex for doing his 50th Parkrun last weekend and to Phil who did the Oulton Park half marathon last weekend too. And last but not least, huge kudos to everyone who donned their trainers and got outside this week!
Thank You Huge thank you as always to Pam and Barry for being fabulous back markers and to Rachel for being on photo duty this evening when I couldn’t be in two places at once! Thank you to Kate at Motherwell for having us this evening. We'll be back!
The Main Event We warmed up on the memorial square this week because it was looking very festive and pretty. The evening was kicked off with a game of ‘Sharky Sharky, Fishy Fishy’ aka ‘Grinchy Grinchy, Elfie Elfie’ (it is Christmas don't you know!). Some were a little more competitive than others (mentioning no names…. Dan!). Fair to say that everyone seemed to enjoy regressing back to their youth for a few brief minutes! ;-) (ps - Dan, we wouldn't change you!)
We then ran to the task with the usual banter and chatter. We were grateful to get into a warm room out of the chilly night air! Our task tonight was to clear the room ready for decorators. The room was lovely and cosy but a little too cosy for 18 people, so we split the group into two. One group went outside and did a fitness session with Nicola while the others stayed inside and used their muscles and then we swapped halfway through the evening. Outside, we did a Christmas themed fitness session and as it happens, we were on Crewe’s busiest road, so this meant we were subject to the occasional horn toot!! We even had a couple of passing pedestrians join in with the push-ups (they weren’t half bad either!). I think we were a sight to behold tonight whilst we were doing ‘ski-jumps’ in the middle of the pavement on Crewe's equivalent of the strip! Many hands truly do make light work and the task was done in good time, so we headed back to base for our cool down and stretches.
Thanks everyone for another fab session. Same time next week? ;-)
Have a great week. Look after yourselves and keep being amazing (don't mean that in a cheesy way.... you really are!). Love Nicola xx
PS – It’s Christmaaaaaaaas! That means it’s most definitely acceptable (and highly encouraged) to wear anything remotely festive – santa hats, Christmas leggings, sparkly boppers…….
