Paula is one of the people that keep the GoodGym community alive and well. By cheering 250 times they've shown they're committed to supporting other runners. They are definitely a fan of what GoodGym is all about.
Duncan, Julia, Sue, Belinda, John, Paula and Barbara from Goodgym were joined by Julie from South Downs Leisure and three Worthing Councillors Martin and his dog, Vicki and John. We all met at 4.30am in good time to watch the sunrise and got straight to work on moving shingle that had covered a footpath along the sea front.
The work was physical but had a huge impact and was clearly visible to see what we had done. We finished up at approx 5.45am with a clear footbath.
Watch the sun rise for the longest day whilst moving shingle and stones that migrated over the footpath and move this back onto the beach. Lets hope its not cloudy!

Rubbing down and painting some garden benches. Wear old GG kit
No slacking , more puffing (Jemmie's motivational quote for the evening)
On a beautiful warm March evening we walked/ ran over to one of our favourite tasks at Bugcycle Garden in Beach House Gardens. This community project is run by Creative Waves, aka Nadia and Nessie.
It was so great to have a lovely light, still evening to work with after all the dark winter evenings.
We had a variety of tasks including Paul's planting a large palm like shrub ( see the before and after photos) . Nadia also asked us to clear the 'lounge ' area where there were piles of bricks and wood and rubbish that needed moving.
There was also a lot of weeding and watering done together with a wheelbarrow run to the green bin!
Lapping it up
Jemmie was keen to get the group doing some fitness so together with Anne, Ros and Mum, Tamsin she led the group on a lap of the park. Whilst the 3 of them continued on another lap, Jemmie and I plotted a fitness game to keep the group busy on their return. This comprised of a variety of functional body weight exercises including step ups, lunges, jumping jacks, shuttle runs and jump squats.
*Need to run home for a leek (Paul's quote of the evening) *
Before we knew it the evening was over and we managed to get a great group photo. Nadia invited us to help ourselves to the leeks that we had dug up to take home and cook.
