Sat 23 Jan
Report written by Ian Bown

On Saturday 23rd January GoodGym Colchester was the host for the 3rd in the series of (not) parkrun training sessions which help keep us motivated during the lockdown.

72 runners from GoodGyms all over the country and the Czech Republic got out of their front doors to complete their 5km session.

Thank you for the superb photos.

This week, Saturday 30th January, the baton is being passed to GoodGym Redbridge to host the final (not) Park run for January . You can sign up via this link :- https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/goodgym-not-parkrun-week-4

Once again, a massive thanks to Melanie Young @ GoodGym Bristol (a very savvy computer person ) for creating the results form and who has been putting the results together for our (not) parkruns.

As ever Ian

., ., .
Improve your fitness

Norwich GoodGym hosted the first GoodGym (not)parkrun, GoodGym Stockport were the hosts for the second week of the national GoodGym (not)parkrun on Saturday 16th.

Colchester GoodGym will be the host for week 3 on Saturday 23rd January.

GoodGym (not)parkrun is being hosted by a different GoodGym area each week during lockdown and is aiming to get everyone involved in the January Challenge 2021, improve your fitness and keep that parkrun spirit going.

You can run or walk, whatever you prefer, from wherever you are in the country.

Everyone is very welcome to join!

Please remember to follow all Covid rules and guidelines on your run, keep safe, be socially-distanced and keep moving!

Just relish being out there.

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

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. 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. Hopefully that total was broken on week 2.

If you'd like a photo to be included in the run report, please take a selfie of yourself or the scenery on the route and send it to me. My WhatsApp is 07890914806. As ever Ian

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

Today’s task led me to Sainsbury’s to pick up a lovely chicken for Miss M, and, as a Friday treat, a hot sausage roll for me for the walk through Kings Cross.

Moving a bed for Mr A

Wed 13 Jan

GoodGym has been asked by a team from Whittington Hospital if any runner is available to help Mr A by moving his bed. Mr C now requires a hospital bed but needs the current bed to be removed first. The task is to please move Mr A double bed in his bedroom downstairs into the main office or outside by the bins for collection. Mr A's bed is a divan bed so tools should not be needed. Mr A will be on site to provide access and direct the task. Mr A would be grateful for any help offered.
