The Kings, Queens, Jacks and Jokers of Windsor & Maidenhead

Sun 28 Feb
Report written by Amy Lovell

Locked down during the coldest UK Winter in 25 years, a card game seemed like a pretty good way to pass the time, so that's what we did....but we did it in GoodGym style of course! So instead of donning our slippers and playing in front of the fire, we donned an extra base layer and woolly hat and and played on the pavements and trails of our lovely borough.

Players dealt eachother cards via WhatsApp and the card determined what training session the player needed to do next. It was all in the luck of the draw! Well done to everyone who took part, and special mention to Lara for dealing even though she wasn't playing.

Had this been a high stakes game, Juli would now be a very rich lady. She ran 14 different cards including lots of Aces (to her favourite coffee places), multiple Kings (of the mountains = hills sessions), a Jack (of all trades = cross-training), multiple runs of between 5km and 10km (some of which were also GoodGym (not)Parkruns where she happens to be the age grade Queen - whoop whoop!!), a 3 ("is me", where she spelled her name with road names) and a 2 (is running with company). She also finished the month on a fabulous 10 (10km), which somehow turned into a 13+km with her partner Nick, because the sun was finally out and the woods are beautiful and why not!?

Oh and Juli ran a joker too! Joker means running in fancy dress. Luckily Amy was also dealt a joker around the same time, so they did the sensible thing and dressed up as the Queen and Ace of hearts and ran a route in the shape of a heart on Valentine's Day. Again, why ever not!? They raised lots of smiles on the way round, although the rain did make the costumes look a bit sad by the end.

Other note-worthy runs included: Claire's awesome 24km walk of Maidenhead Boundary, which could have counted for multiple cards; and Jess and Sophie's fitness session where they showed great solidarity by both doing sprints for Sophie's Queen (of speed = intervals) AND a HIIT work-out for Jess's Jack (of all trades) - epic stuff!

And Tara did her final run today, an Ace (to her favourite place), which also included dropping off bunches of daffodils on friends' doorsteps. Such a lovely thing to do, and all under a stunning moon!

A surprise visit at the COVID-19 vaccination clinic

Sat 20 Feb
Report written by Sara Powell

It was all hands on deck at the COVID-19 clinic this week. The arrival of the health pods are a great addition to the clinics. With fewer people visiting their GP since COVID arrived, there is a risk that dangerous health conditions are not being diagnosed early enough. The health pods help check some basic health indicators and if the results raise concerns then the patient is referred for a check-up. All of the GoodGym team members have done a fantastic job, in stepping up to the challenge. We have had amazing feedback from the clinical team, so a HUGE well done to everyone who has been attending these clinics.

Saturday, Windsor & Maidenhead's MP Mrs Theresa May came to see how the clinic was running. It was so nice for several of the 'GoodGym' team to be able to talk with her. Unfortunately, we couldn't capture the meeting on camera, as no photos are allowed to be taken in the clinic.....

Goodgym getting the shots in

Sat 13 Feb
Report written by Tara Isherwood

Jen, Sara, Paul, James, Jess and Tara supported at the vaccine clinic again this week.
The 10, 000th vaccine was administered at the Desborough Suite in Maidenhead on Thursday. Positive feedback continues from the locals and their appreciation for all involved in the organisation of the Vaccination Centre. The Saturday Team may have hit a record when opening up this morning with a not so balmy -4°C. Hot tea and multiple layers of clothing kept them going throughout the chilly shift.
