Group runs are baaaaaack

A few of us celebrated the return of group runs by jogging to the Children's Allotment, tin of flapjacks in hand! Baked goods are always required to celebrate milestones, no matter how disintegrated they get on the journey over! Well done to Lorenzo and Sarah on your 50th and 100th good deeds!!

Tonight we returned to one of our favorite spots The Children's Allotment. We have loved coming here over the past few years and it is fantastic to see the progress of the site, and so exciting that it is nearly ready to open!

Alice set us to work weeding areas of the site, cutting back enthusiastic plants (ivy, brambles), shifting wood chip and painting the shed and new compost toilet structure. We discovered interesting spiders (the Fake Black Widow with its round bottom, the Kardashian of the spider world maybe?!?), accidentally gave woodlice a blue tinge and marveled at the plants in the snazzy new poly-tunnel.

A warm welcome to Jules and Matty joining us for the first time, we hope to see you again! And a huge thank you to Alice for allowing us our repeated visits and being so welcoming and joyous!

Preparing Food parcels 28.7.21

Wed 28 Jul

We have 2 tasks tonight. This is the early shift at Oxford Mutual Aid, and there will also be a task at The Children’s Allotment (less than 1 mile away) starting at 6:15pm. It would be feasible to make it to both if you want a full evening of GoodGyming.

We will be based inside Richard Benson Hall preparing food parcels and helping the drivers load them into their cars.

Please wear a mask. Anwen will be at the hall from 4pm, so feel free to turn up any time between 4pm and 4:30pm.

Library Deliveries

Wed 28 Jul
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

I selected books from the library and delivered them to two older ladies in Banbury. In exchange I got some top tips for growing hydrangeas from one, and the other’s face lit up when telling about the book I delivered last time - it made my day that she liked it so much.

GoodGym x I am Team GB

Wed 11 Aug 19:45 pm
Roger Bannister running track, , Iffley Rd, Cowley, Oxford , OX4 1EQ
running at the Roger Bannister track - where the first sub4 minute mile was run

We've been given access to the Roger Bannister Track for a half hour session this evening.

Track sessions are great for all speeds and experience of runners - since we run around in circles no-one can get too far ahead or behind the group!

We will do an introductory session including a warm up, section of fast and slow intervals, then a cool down jog at the end. The principle is similar to a HIIT session, where you alternate sections of higher effort with gentle recovery sections. Everyone will run or run-walk at their own pace, so the faster runners will just have to complete more intervals in the time ;-)

Open to all, come and join in!

We will meet outside the main reception to the sports centre. Please ensure you are there by 7:45pm as I won't be able to come back out to collect latecomers.

Aston's Eyot; Island fun

Wed 11 Aug 18:00 pm
East Oxford Community Centre, 44 Princes St, Oxford, OX4 1DD
Maintenance of the nature reserve

Aston’s Eyot is an island in East Oxford formed by the River Thames, the River Cherwell and Shire Lake Ditch. The 32 acre nature reserve was originally a water meadow, then a rubbish tip for a while at the end of the 19th Century, it is now a mosaic of woodland, open area and scrubland. The land is managed by the Friends of Aston’s Eyot as a nature reserve with public access.

We will have a range of tasks to do this evening, including raking up cut grass and picking up litter, clearing nettles. It's possible the scythes will come out, but hopefully we'll skip the hayfever this month!

We have a booking for a half an hour run on the Roger Bannister track after our volunteer stint (FOR FREE!), so if you fancy a go on the track where the first sub-4 minute mile was run then come in your sports kit. The track is a great place for people of all different paces to run together, so please don't think this is only for the speedsters - all very welcome. from run-walk through to sprinters! This will be 7:45-8:15pm. Sign up for the track session is here.

Please bring your own gardening gloves, all other tools will be provided. There will be nettles and brambles so wear long trousers if you want to avoid stings and scratches!

Meeting options:
* Anyone wishing to run or walk to the task as a group please meet in the car park of the Richard Benson Hall, 276b Cowley Rd at 6pm. There will be running and walking routes planned. There won’t be a bag drop available.
* If you would prefer to meet at the task please meet us on the corner of Jackdaw Lane and Meadow Lane at 6:15pm.
