Girls Just Wanna Have RUN

Wed 3 Aug
Muggy evening but marvelous company!

Arriving We were meeting at the Greenleaf church and I was wondering where everyone was at 6.40pm... but it turns out ladies were waiting at the front of the church, whilst I was inside at the back:) We had a lovely suprise and welcomed Sinead for her first ever goodgym session! Sadly Sinead hasn't signed up and I haven't taken her details so Sinead - if you're reading this, please leave a comment below to identify yourself:).

Girls Justs Wanna Have RUN This week we are once again back with another 80s song reference. Let's just face it - it was the best era for cool tunes;)! We started tonight's session with a warm up and then nice and gently jogged to the Lloyds Park, around it and made our way onto the Forest Rd. Those who've been to the session before started throwing in sounds of terror because they knew what was coming... Yes, The Hurst Hill of Hell was upon us but like a group of amazons we sprinted up like it was nothing, OK we jogged up composed, OK we moaned and groaned and swore to make it to the top...!!!! Great heart rate buster this! But once at the top we pushed on to the end of the road and arrived nicely warmed up (an understatement) for a session at the St. Mary's churchyard.

Spreading the seed Tim the gardener had a lovely surprise of a task for us - we had a task of collecting wildflower seeds from the grounds of the church but also across the road where a nice wildflower meadow had plenty of seeds to collect. Tim kindly explained to us how different seed pods and seeds look, showed us a variety of wildflowers such as cornflower, california and other poppies, nigella and many more. It was a gentle and relaxing task and gave us a chance to get to know each other, especially Sinead! After a quick 40 or so minutes we gently jogged to Greenleaf, remembering to take a group selfie photo and stretched down on arrival.

A lovely session !

You can sign up for next week HERE.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood

Wed 30 Mar

From six corners of Waltham forest we made our way to Leyton Parish Church (also confusingly called St Mary's ( armed with our garden gloves and energy in abundance to cover a path with fresh woodchip that the church had sourced for free from the local council. Mel and James (I hope that's his name) provided tea and tools (tea before task? We will definitely be back!!) and then we set to. Some loaded the wheelbarrows, some raced it up the path and deposited it some raked it evenly along the path. We amused ourselves with tongue twisters like 'how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood' By happy chance the daylight faded to evening just as we finished and we all disappeared into the night basking in a GoodGym glow of another task well done.
