Party In My Plants

Tue 3 Mar
Report written by Mark Gilyead

First up, big up totally fresh to GG; Josie, Andrew and Erica - thanks for coming along :)

Tonight GG Lambeth ran to Jubilee Primary School to smash through a massive task.

We had a couple of run options - Direct 2k with me or a little 5k loop with the burgundy boys (Alfie & Steve).

Then we arrived at Jubilee Primary ready to crack on:

1️⃣ Pulling out weeds - not the bulbs, the fake parsley or the tulips 💐 - just the weeds 🌱

2️⃣ Moving the big bags of soil and emptying them into the planter. 👜

3️⃣ Planting some lovely shrubs into the planter 🌳

Things we learnt:

1️⃣ There's a children's book called "Dogger"

2️⃣ Heads, ELBOWS, Knees and Toes is a great song to remind us how to run up hills (and it rhymes better than the original).

3️⃣I need to get another set of keys cut.

All tasks and knowledge learning was done extra efficiently, and what would have taken Juan hours on his own was done in 30 minutes by team Lambeth. ✊

GoodGym Lambeth, I love your work.

Hopefully see you next week for moving out a load of furniture from Brixton Road Youth Centre!

Filling up a skip!

Tue 3 Mar 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
At Jubilee Primary School

We're heading to Jubilee Primary School. Last time they didn't have a skip but this time they will and we've got to fill it! It's a big school so I'm sure there will be loads to chuck out.

We might even throw in a HIIT session or some hill sprints - be prepared!


We meet at PAPA’s Park near Brixton station every Tuesday evening from 6.45, ready to run at 7pm. We run to a local community organisation, do a physical job for them and then run back. We throw in a few fun fitness drills and have a monthly pub visit after the run!

Whether you’re new to running or a seasoned pro, we always have different distance options and a back marker so no-one gets left behind.

There are toilets and a locked room to leave your stuff in. We’ll be back by 8:30pm.

Any questions? Drop me an email!

Oh Water Night!

Tue 18 Feb
Report written by Mark Gilyead

🎵 Mid February in Twenty-twenty... 🎵

The GoodGym gods were smiling down on us last night as the rains subsided and let us do our task in relative dryness!

This week we were off to the Yellow Qube, a new community centre in Tulse Hill, to finish off some litter picking and ivy removal that we started a few weeks ago.

First up we welcomed lovely new runners Selina, Hanna, Christina, Robyn and Jie to the fold and adorned Alfie with the CAPE OF GOOD HOPE for smashing his 50th good deed! 😲

We had a quick warm up and split into two distance teams. Nicky lead a longer route via Herne Hill and the rest of us only got a little lost on a shorter but hilly run.

When we arrived we had to vault a slippery fence to get into the area to be tidied which everyone (generally) did with grace and elegance. We shared around the gloves and bags and got to work, yanking up the ivy and picking up the rubbish. In no time at all we'd filled up every single bag (probs like 30..!), jumped back over the fence, took a snap and headed back.

A bunch of us then headed off for a quick sip at the Grosvenor!

ACE WORK TEAM

Next week we've got TWO tasks - either a nice 5k up to the Portico Gallery or a shorter 2k to help the GP Food Co op in Stockwell! Click here to get signed up!

Clearing out furniture at Brixton Road Youth Centre

Tue 18 Feb 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
and a return trip to the YELLOW QUBE

This week we’ve got two tasks!

We'll be clearing out a load of old furniture at Brixton Road Youth Centre. 💥

And a few weeks back we started pulling up ivy at super swish community centre THE YELLOW QUBE in Tulse Hill. We'll be finishing that off too.

Hope you can make it down!

OH and it's it's pub week! 🍻 🍻 🍻

Wood you rather?

Tue 11 Feb
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Despite a last minute cancellation, we had TWO tasks on offer.

Nicky lead the run to option one: ☝️

Our group of excellent group of GoodGymmers braved the cold to run to the beloved Remakery. After a quick introduction to the brilliant work they do there, reusing and upcycling materials into furniture/sculptures etc, our first challenge was to divide into three groups - one large, one medium, one small.

Two groups were sweeping and hoovering the woodwork workshops. Armed with a Henry Hoover and very attractive face masks, they quickly made a huge difference. The other group were moving large piles of wooden planks and sorting them into small, medium and large. They quickly got a system in place and GoodGym efficiency won again. On our way back to base, we did a quick meet and retreat fitness round Myatts Fields park. And then it was time to head home and warm up.

Good work everyone! - Nicky

The rest of us headed had a longer run to flyer for Brixton People’s Kitchen, actually nearer Vauxhall...

By day, it’s a cafe serving good value grub to locals. By night, it provides cooking workshops using food from supermarkets that would otherwise go to waste!

We split into 3 groups to cover 3 separate areas in the immediate vicinity. Unfortunately we couldn't get into the upper flat block levels... but hopefully those on the ground floor will spread the word to their neighbours! After a solid 20 minutes avoiding finger-biting dogs, we took a few beautiful posed photos and headed back.

Oh and there was even a lovely lit up heart. GoodGym's theme for the month is #GiveItHeart so that was nice :)

Cracking running guys!

And nice one Clem and Michael for joining us for your first ever GG run! 💥


See y'all next week for another two tasks: Clearing out furniture at Brixton Rd Youth Centre and pulling up the rest of the ivy at the YELLOW QUBE. Also, it's pub week! 🍻 🍻 🍻
