The Quay to the City

Mon 27 Jun
Report written by Ash

Goodgym Sheffield came out on a bright Monday evening to help Sustrans Super Simon tidy up a neglected path heading up behind Victoria Quays.

We started off with a pre-run warm up consisting of arm circles, leg swings, knee hugs, butt kicks and side lunges. All limbered up we ran the short journey from the Showroom to the entrance to Victoria Quays, where Simon briefed us on the task in hand.

We set to work cutting back the surprisingly spiky foliage back to wall, scraping growth from the path, and cleaning up litter.

After bagging up a significant amount of choppings we headed to South Street Park for 3 x shuttle runs up the cobble hill path, then onto the amphitheatre for 3 sets of press-ups followed by a stretch off.

Well well well road... Time for a haircut

Mon 20 Jun
Report written by Tom Mutton

With all this lovely weather we have been having it has meant that green growth has been shooting up everywhere! It's fantastic to see but from time to time the hedges around Heeley People's Park need a quick trim to keep things looking prim and proper and providing good open paths for pedestrians passing by. Peter pepper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

14 of us rocked up to help Parky Rob with the task this week. After a brief brief we got straight to it, grabbing loppers and cutting back the overgrowth to fill the provided tonne bags with the cuttings which were then placed in the park for composting. We also had a good sweep of the pavement and the gutter after to clean up after ourselves and leave the paths wider and nice and clear for all users.

After a good lot of cutting, tree and berry identification we popped tools back into the barrows, emptied the final tonne bags and said our farewells to Rob until the next time.

Before people went their separate ways we got some fitness in on the steps with a couple of short 30s bursts of:

  • Press Ups (3 options)
  • Box jumps or stair sets

Once complete we headed off into the hot summers eve back to the Showroom for some stretching and cooling down.

Until next week, happy running :)

Small park BIG RUN 2022: Running up that hill

Sat 18 Jun
Report written by Rachel

After 2 years of virtual events, this year saw Small park BIG RUN back in its home of Meersbrook Park - home of a mighty hill and magnificent views over Sheffield.

It's an annual event that GoodGym has been involved with from the start. It's aims are to show solidarity for Palestine and raise money for Palestinian women's and children's charities. 🇵🇸

This year saw Goodgymmers old and new (and even mini-goodgymmers) taking on THAT hill multiple times, coming to a total of 358 laps between us (each lap approx 1km)!!

Special shout out to Bee, who walked 51 laps as she recovers from injury, Katy, who ran 55 laps and Celine who walked/jogged 90 laps on and off over the whole 24 hours 👏👏👏! Great team effort though with people doing what they could and really fab to see so many GG'ers around.

We rounded off with a lovely picnic spread whilst we watched the fun run, speeches and live link up with Palestine ❤️! GG know how to do a picnic!

Getting Picky on Pitsmoor Road

Mon 13 Jun
Report written by Tom Mutton

9 of us headed over to Pitsmoor Road to help the local Pitsmoor Pickers group with a clean up on either side of the road. It was great to welcome back Robert and Thomas after spells away for work and travels. Welcome back guys!

By the time we finished the bags were pilled up and the streets were looking spotless.

On the way back we paired up for some fast times fitness featuring paired work involving:

  • Sprints
  • Isometric Squats
  • Planks
  • Bum slaps (you had to be there)

At the end of the run Celine had the great idea of heading for some 'picky' food at a local Etheopean restaurant - Frehiwat Habesha. The food was delish and with loads to spare most of us even had lunch sorted for the next day!

Until next time, happy running :)

Lift and paint, with the common people

Mon 23 May
Report written by Tom Mutton

Yes, that was a Sheffield based Pulp pun..

On a beautiful Sheffield evening we were back off to meet MARVELOUS MARIA from Common Ground Community Garden to help with a bit of a spring clean. This time around we took on the below tasks:

  • Litter picking
  • Painting planters a beautiful sky blue
  • Clearing out a basement
  • Clearing out a store cupboard
  • Filling a skip

Maria was very thankful for the help which will make the spaces a lot easier to use and make storage for other equipment to be used by the surrounding community. The beds looked ace!

On completion of our tasks we used this amazing area for some paired fitness where one person would take on an exercise whilst their partner did 2 laps of the 'Stonehenge Circle' before tagging their partner to swap over. This weeks exercises included:

  • Planks (the exercise, not the people)
  • Press Ups
  • Squat Jumps

Until next time, happy running :)
