S'no real parkrun ... It's a GoodGym parkrun

Sat 16 Jan
Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

Yesterday, GoodGym Stockport hosted the second in a series of (not) parkrun training sessions, aiming to keep us fit, active and happy during the current Lockdown measures.

Saturday 16th saw an incredible 83 runners from GoodGyms up and down the country...and even overseas! (shout out to those who were running in GoodGym spirit from Prague and Spain!) pacing their local trails and green spaces to complete the 5km session.

It seems the elements were out in spectacular force with runners embracing the winter wonderland conditions!

All in all, a RUNderful Saturday (not) parkrun!

Next week, Saturday 23rd January, the baton will be passed to GoodGym Colchester to host. You can sign up here: https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/goodgym-not-parkrun-week-3

Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who will put the results together for our (not) parkrun events.

Improve your fitness

After the incredible success of Norwich's meticulous hosting of the first GoodGym (not)parkrun,  GoodGym Stockport are hosting the second week of the national GoodGym (not)parkrun on Saturday 16th January!

GoodGym (not)parkrun will be hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved in the January Challenge 2021, get fit and active in your local community and carry forward the parkrun spirit!

You can complete your 5K any time on Saturday and submit your time, by midnight on Saturday, using the form.

A big shout out to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (aka tech savvy whizz kid) for creating the results form and who will put the results together for our (not)parkrun events.  To let her know your email address and other useful information, there's a one-off registration form to complete. You can find this here.

The first GoodGym (not)parkrun saw an amazing 76 GoodGym runners across the UK take part... can we make it over 100 this week? ;-)

If you'd like a photo to be included in the run report, please take a selfie and email it to sian@goodgym.org or WhatsApp to 07969306127.

GoodGym (not) parkrun - Week 1

Sat 9 Jan
Report written by Steven Hitcham

With the January Challenge well under way, the GoodGym Area Activators discussed ways we can engage members across all areas, on some bigger training sessions.

One of our ideas was a weekly GoodGym (not) parkrun, to be hosted by a different area each week, but open to GoodGymers from all areas each week.

I happily volunteered GoodGym Norwich to host the inaugural GoodGym (not) parkrun, with a rather large helping hand from Melanie Young at GG Bristol for organising the results.

I've inlcuded any photos that were sent to me. If you'd like your photo added to this report, please email steven@goodgym.org.

The results are below:

1) 18:32 Simon Fitzmaurice First Timer CR. 2) 19:35 Dave Thomson First Timer. 3) 22:25 Becky Jones First Timer. 4) 22:29 Manuel Laurijssen First Timer. 5) 22:45 Kerry Buckley First Timer. 6) 22:54 James G First Timer. 7) 22:59 Steven Hitcham First Timer. 8) 23:05 Stephen Reed First Timer. 9)= 23:28 Joanne Kitching First Timer. 9)= 23:28 Hilary Wood First Timer. 11) 23:36 Katie Carew-Robinson First Timer. 12) 24:00 Lisbon Dave First Timer. 13) 24:10 Robert Organ First Timer. 14) 24:22 Jonathan W First Timer. 15) 24:33 Laura Knogler First Timer. 16) 24:35 Alex Passa First Timer. 17) 24:57 Richard Breakspear First Timer. 18) 25:00 Tav First Timer. 19) 25:01 Samantha Ismail-Epps First Timer. 20) 25:06 Fraser Mashiter First Timer. 21) 25:32 Nick Moore First Timer. 22) 25:39 Laura W First Timer. 23) 25:47 Juli Wood First Timer. 24) 26:00 Liz* First Timer. 25) 26:12 Richard Borrowdale First Timer. 26) 26:31 Katie_g First Timer. 27) 26:57 Alex Moylett First Timer. 28) 27:10 Alex I First Timer. 29) 27:58 Simon R-J First Timer. 30) 28:24 Tasha Watts First Timer. 31) 28:47 Karl Savill First Timer. 32) 28:53 Rebecca Marston First Timer. 33) 29:09 Sian Stockport First Timer. 34) 29:12 Emperor Matt (Ret.)

(An asterisk means the person hasn't filled in the registration form https://forms.gle/Ke7hCFamgZmxSDDFA).

If your name isn't on here, it's because you didn't submit a time, please remember to do this in future weeks, that's if you want your time recorded :-)

You can also see age graded results via this Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/406276916245285.

Here's some other statistics Melanie has put together.

76 - Number of GG(n)parkrunners. 76 - Number of First Timers. 0 - Number of VPBs. 32:34 - Average Time. 18:32 - Course Record. 22:25 - Female Record. 18:32 - Male Record.

0.76 - Average Feeling Improvement. 41 - Feeling better 22 - Feeling the same 11 - Feeling worse

Well done for everyone for taking part, I hope it continues to be popular and grow over the coming weeks.

GoodGym Camden's End of Year Quiz & Scavenger Hunt!

Wed 30 Dec 19:30 pm
Your Street, Your City, Your Post Code
A great way to ring in the New Year with friends

So it's finally time to kick 2020 out the door and look forward to better times; the vaccine, life to slowly restart again and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris move into the White House.

What better way to do that than an End of Year quiz and scavenger hunt with GG Camden?! There'll be music, there'll be little fitness challenges, there'll be trivia.

It's been a year. Let's celebrate the better moments together.

We'll kick off at 7:30 and it should wrap up by 9/9:30.

Would be lovely to see as many faces as possible and I hope to see you there! (You don't have to be a Camdener to join in the fun)

I'll email round the Zoom link a few days before.

Happy Christmas!

The course of true love never did heron smooth

Tue 3 Nov
Report written by CJ Jessup

Taking Ms A her prescription was a nice break from the highs and lows of jobhunting.

I admired the neighbourhood pond and Ms A told me that the decoy heron installed there hadn't managed to put the real birds off eating the goldfish. That is, except for one heron, who took a fancy to the plastic one and attempted some "courtship" with it... Ooo er. Better luck next time heron - and plenty more fish, literally!

Blooming Bloomsbury - part 3

Sat 24 Oct
Report written by Lici Inge

Claudia, Richard, CJ, Ceiling, Lici and Geraldine joined the Friends of Russell Square community gardening volunteers for another crack at getting more daffodil bulbs planted so they can bloom in the spring. Last year's bulb-planting session was managed in a single day, but both weather and reduced volunteer numbers (thanks to the pandemic keeping students and local workers away) has meant the bulb-planting has had to be spread out over several weeks. Still, it was another lovely, social morning in the square, digging, planting, chatting and answering questions from curious passers-by, followed by lunch in the pub for those who lingered on. Community-making in action.
