I Saw the Sign!

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Jonny Carter

This week as if with myself being one Yorkshireman wasn't enough, we had another, yes it was fantastic to meet Michael from GG York enjoy the Brum canals with us.

Tonight's task was to firstly spot the Sustrans National Cycle network signs and secondly clean them. We headed off along the canal all the way to Spaghetti junction, meeting our walking group of Amy, Melanie and Nadia at Aston Lock. They walked North to clean some signs and we ran further to clean the signs up towards Spaghetti. This week's pun came from Jamila, we did have one from Matt, but on running back i've forgot what it was! Anyway i'm sure it's a popular pun for Ace of Base fans!

Once reaching Spaghetti we saw the most amazing sunset, I just had to take a picture! Then the group headed back with Balal, literally running into the sunset! That was a good 10km covered in total, so well done team :)

Butterfly PT’s!

Tue 7 Sep
Report written by Jonny Carter

Well tonight was certainly a rather warm evening for GoodGym Brum, so it was great to have a gardening task!

It was lovely to meet Yvette for her first GG group run, I don't think you could have picked a better evening, that's for sure!

We met Josie, from the JQ Trust and headed to the cemetry. Our job was to chop down some buddleia which apparently is loved by butterfly's, but not very good for them! Hence why we became butterfly Personal Trainers for the night. In small groups the buddleia was chopped down, then dragged to a pile (see picture with the group in front of a pile of it). Once done the walking group headed back with Josie and the runners got running!

Liam led the group on a 4k run taking in the Soho Loop, continuing to Brindley Place, then back to 1000 Trades. Done for another week and everyone certainly deserved a cold drink of some description.

Looping around Soho!

Thu 26 Aug
Report written by Jonny Carter

Tonight it was great to welcome Molly to GG Brum for the first time.

Ben did the back marker job, walking to the task with Nadia and Mel also met us on the Soho Loop.

Yep tonight we went to a different part of the canal, the Soho Loop, hence the pun. On reaching our destination, first we managed to save an exhausted bee, from being squashed on the path! Yep he happily got on my yellow litter pick and got put back amongst the flowers, do good number 1 of the evening :)

We then headed onto the loop, meeting Mel. We found a particularly problematic spot which will filled our bags with.

Once done we did some hill training, yep 4 tough minutes, followed by a 1 minute rest, then another 3 minutes! Pretty tough, the bridges being fantastic for this, run up hard, across the top hard, then easy back down. Everyone put a top shift in.

Once done it was a steady run or walk back to 1000 Trades on what was a fabulous, sunny evening.
