The early bird catches the pasta, milk, honey, soup, rice, pasta sauce...

Wed 21 Apr
Report written by Jenny McCurry

The foodbank asked if we could come at 7 to load some food into vans at Aldi. That's 7am, not 7pm!

Luckily a few hardy Goodgymmers agreed to brave the early start before work and enjoy the peaceful early morning vibes. Kudos to Julia for cycling there and back, and James for cycling there. I was lazy and got the tube, but I do live further away, and needed to stay awake afterwards through a long day of meetings and presentations. I promise to try the hill on my bike next time. 😀

We were kept busy loading all manner of goods into the vans using the classic 'human chain' approach, and coming up with alternatives to wrapping all the fragile jars in clingfilm (not a fun task!). Genevieve made sure everyone was kept well nourished with muffins and kitkats. We even had time to have a look for Cuthbert (no sign unfortunately!). By 8.30 am we were all loaded up and ready to head home to start the working day. A very satisfying start to a Wednesday, well done everyone!

Aldi is donating a huge amount of food stuff to Redbridge Covid-19 Mutual Aid foodbank, there are vehicles and drivers but they need help to load the vehicles with donations - this is where they asked for help.

The catch - it's at 7am!!!

Gimme Core (It's Britney, side stich...)

Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Julia Shmotkina

Well done to everyone for putting in fantastic effort tonight! We focused on a lot of core work with crunches, russian twists, flutter kicks, planks to mention a few... We also did some slow lunges and tricep work.

Great to see cat making an appearance for the pic;)

If you're wondering about the title - check out Britney Spear's Gimme More song on Spotify/Youtube - took me back to my 'young' years lol:)

Fairlop Waters training session and social picnic

Sun 23 May 11:00 am
Fairlop Waters, Forest Road, Barkingside, IG6 3HN
Getting together after lockdown

By this point we will hopefully be beyond rule of 6 restrictions and can meet as a larger group outdoors. What better way to celebrate than a run at Fairlop Waters (flexible on distance and pace to suit you) followed by a classic Goodgym picnic.

On this occasion we will also be doing some very scientific taste testing to determine who tastes better: Colin or Cuthbert the Caterpillar. Hope to see you there!

The meeting point for this session will be at the entrance to Fairlop Waters activity centre, opposite the car park.

NB. We are hopeful that this can happen but may have to postpone if there are delays to the Covid roadmap.
