"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans...

You have the best plans laid out, you think you know what your evening is going to look like, you start thinking ahead for a good pun. It always works as planned, right?

No need to worry. After a last minute task cancellation, 9 lion-hearted GoodGymmers galloped to rescue tonight's Haringey GoodGym task.

The wonderful folk over at the Bridge Renewal Trust offered to host us tonight at the last minute and our GoodGymmers huddled together and ran the whole 2k to the task as a unit. We even managed to fit in a quick sprint race on the way.

At the task, Russel from the Bridge Renewal Trust welcomed us at the Chestnuts Community Centre where we were tasked with bringing a massive circular flower bed back to life. They're hoping to turn it into a community-led food garden, involving local school children. That's all we needed to hear! We weeded. Oh, reader, how we weeded. We worked on this bed whilst chatting away and in no time, it was looking a lot better. We hope we've given the Trust the head start it needed to get the project going and we can't wait to come back and help again.

After a glam photo session, Rock Star Dave led us on a very fun sprint warm up, and then it was a quick 800m dash around an ol' faithful Haringey GoodGym Strava Segment for us.

We said our goodbyes to Flo, whom we are losing to the Goodgyms south of the river and then headed back to home base, tired but happy.

Can't argue with that!

Tune in next week for more shenanigans. Even better, join us!
