A run down memory lane

Wed 17 Feb
Report written by Mark Barun

What a great way to get out without actually going

I felt like I was back on the run in the old stomping ground with some of the places mentioned and photos sent so thanks to all who took part.

We had Landmarks where we hopped the border to help out on the Richmond fringes and met there to deliver flyers at a Christmas promotion for Elleray hall - I rememebr it well.

My Bushy park photo where we had a few fitness sessions but I remember most for the dark run or two we had in there as a group, particularly the last ever where it poured and we got sooo soaked and muddy

And then Luke kindly sent it some photos too of Lovelace Road area / Wayside with so many memories there but a big one is the reenactment of the old Beatles photo at a level crossing in our GG shirts - GOOD times and great momories.

More were mentioned too like the phone boxes down Old London Road but none dared to mention the time we ran 11 point something km's on the hottest day of the year ha ha

Was great running down memory lane with you all - thanks for taking part

Sentimental session

Wed 17 Feb 18:45 pm

Capture the fitness SCENE!

OK I cannot lie, this session idea has been spurred by feelings of nostalgia for our local area.

In pre lockdown days the sense of the run for me captured a sense of freedom, the knowing that once the trainers were on then the road could take you anywhere. Just so long as the mind and feet were willing, you could get to most places in the borough, be free and enjoy the scenes around where we live.

Right now, with staying local and trying to dodge a 100 people per km (it feels that way at least) it restricts the freedom thing and I know for me I do not run to anywhere near the variety of places I use to.

So, I miss seeing what used to be the normal background for my space and of course I miss sharing with those I use to at times too when we could run together.

I am not sure how many others among us feel the same, but with the chance some do and in a bid to keep us moving with purpose I am throwing this out there.

This week if as many of us as can run, walk, cycle to a place in our borough that is somewhat of a landmark, a scene of beauty, a talking point or simply a place that means something to you then let’s do it and share!

It could be even an old group run task location which has fond memories for you or a local pub that you have not had a drink in for, HOW MANY DAYS (and minutes)???

Once there take a selfie or just a shot of the place. Let’s all share on WhatsApp next Wednesday or direct with me if you prefer on email. It will give us all a chance to see some of our wonderful borough that perhaps we have not jogged past in ages.

I am excited to see what you come up with ; - )

Being healthy is no joke... OR is it?

Thu 28 Jan
Report written by Mark Barun

SO loved getting the photos for this training session sent to me.

Great to see some taking part and I never imagined the photos were going to be framed too. Brilliant

So we had a run I am guessing and a cycle it looks like, so we ticked the active boxes.

It looks together and apart too!

AND as for the note well it was no joke .... ermmm actually it was and in keeping with the local Kingston landmark too!

Q) did you hear about the party in a phone box

(tempted not to tell anyone here and let them guess, but .....)

A) IT WAS OFF THE HOOK

Ha ha ha

Now I couldn't make the party anyway as I was otherwise engaged but it looked terrific and thank Jane and Jassy for the photos and the humour ; - ) Well done getting active too!!

Sunshine & smiles while supporting the vaccination centre

Sat 23 Jan
Report written by Jassy Drakulic

The team are still going strong and making incredible headway vaccinating the priority groups. The weather was much colder this week, but the sunshine was splendid and we think meant that more people arrived on foot and made for a pleasant shift welcoming people to the centre.

Healthy together but apart

Virtually there!!!

OK so here is a thought, given that we are trying to be as safe as we can. All the while I imagine craving some fitness as well as social interaction AND remembering the GG guidelines now are as follows ...

Exercise alone or with people from your household

Stay local and avoid busy areas

Maintain a 2-metre distance from other people at all times

what if we try this ….?

You buddy up through the WhatsApp group or a contact of your choice (not necessarily within GG) and you make your way to the same point at a different time. Bear with me now!!

SO, you RUN, WALK or CYCLE ON YOUR OWN The journey is to be to a chosen point (agreed if working with buddy system). Make the distance the same for both taking part (can be different routes but same overall distance if you can).

If you want to, why not make a little more interesting or challenging and record your time to make the outbound distance so you can race each other.

At the point chosen for the destination take a photo of the landmark with a note of inspiration, good will, a gesture or joke to share with just the fitness buddy or even the whole group. So, note in the photo with destination in the background or a selfie with the whole lot going on of course!

This week’s fitness fun for you if you wish to take part and if you are happy to, then share a photo or two with me and I can make a report as well - The message does not have to be too heavy - A good food recipe for dinner could be yum eh!

Stay safe and enjoy - Anytime within the week (once or more!)

You can even do alone and share in the whatsapp group of course too!

We layered up and donned hi-vis to help ensure that the drop-off parking spots outside the vaccination centre were being used properly. The team are doing a fantastic job and we had the pleasure of overhearing so much positivity and praise by those coming out after their jabs.

Brought round some 'bits' to Mrs B. She's new to GG and I hope we can help her further in future. I also spotted some cool fungi on a street tree in the neighbourhood on my walk back home :)
