A night at the theatre for a little run through

Mon 17 Jan
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

Blue Monday? Not in Wandsworth it wasn't! We ignored the chilly conditions and the Monday vibes, and instead opted to get together to run to a local theatre and arts charity for a spot of volunteering and a high energy fitness session.

It was lovely to welcome Tony to his first GoodGym session - give him a cheer! It was also great to hear about all the tips people had for cheering themselves up when they feel a bit down. As we did our warm up, we decided calling a family member or friend, going for a walk or run, eating something delicious or trying a new recipe, seeing somebody tap dance and of course, watching Nigella was the sure fire way to feel happier!

After a short run to the theatre we were given our list of jobs, which included cleaning, painting and weeding. This venue aims to bring the arts to the whole community, but does not receive any direct funding, and so always welcomes some energetic volunteers.

A lot was done in a short amount of time last night, so well done team. After downing tools we headed outside to Clapham Old Town for a brief but intense session of Tabata, upper body exercises and a plank finisher. What a way to beat that chill!

A quick run back to base and some stretches, and we were done for the evening. As well as our usual group run next Monday, we have lots of missions throughout the week coming up. You can check them all out here.

Happy running everyone!

Sieving Wonders of the World

Mon 10 Jan
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

We were back with a bang in Wandsworth last night with a fabulous group of GoodGymers raring to go!

It was lovely to see Wandsworth regulars, faces from other boroughs coming to join us, and to welcome Kelly to GoodGym for her very first run. Cheers all round!

After a quick warm up where we talked about the task ahead - helping out at a local community garden transformed from a multistory carpark and run by volunteers - and discussed our New Year's resolutions. Several of us pledged to be on time more (every year for me - going to happen any day now, I'm sure of it), while others vowed to walk, cycle and run more. There was even the excellent intention to be more Nigella.

We set off for Doddington, with only a minor hiccup along the way as some of us took on a little additional mileage, and arrived at the garden to find Malissa waiting for us with jobs that included digging over and sieving the compost, as well as clearing leaves from the pathways.

After forty minutes of hard work, we said our goodbyes and headed off into the night, stopping along the way for several fitness stations which included the dreaded progressive squat and pavement toe taps.

There are loads of exciting things coming up, including several missions this weekend - you can check out all the options here. If you fancy a free tickets to the National running show on the 22nd - 23rd Jan at the Birmingham NEC (https://nationalrunningshow.com/birmingham) you can get a free one thorugh Wandsworth runner Oliver with free ticket code - OCANNON. Thanks Ollie!

Don't forget parkrun every saturday at 9am - a couple of GGers said they were doing Wimbledon so look out for some friendly faces.

Next week we're off to a local theatre and arts charity to lend a hand, you can sign up for more fun right here. Hope fully see you then, but in the meantime, run happy into 2022!

Help out at a rooftop garden

We're back with a bang for the first group of the year! Join us at the BAC to run down to a rooftop community garden where we will be helping the volunteers with various jobs at this converted rooftop. We will then do a fitness session which will blow those cobwebs away before heading back to base.

If you have a headtorch please bring it along as this is a dark task.

A group of Good Gymers along with other volunteers spent a couple of hours wrapping hampers for refugees. The charity is aiming to have 100 done to give to refugees in Wandsworth and we definitely made a dent in that!

Compost Mentis

Mon 6 Dec
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

Despite the best laid plans, sometimes it doesn't quite go as expected. Take tonight's last minute change of task as a good example! Unfortunately our run down to the school was canceled last minute, but with a little sprinkle of Christmas we managed to swap it around with next week's mission and the night was saved!

Before we headed down to the Venue, a local community space and food sharing hub, we did a warm up and had our question of the week. Tonight was a two parter - what's the best thing about the lead up to Christmas, and mince pies: yes or no? Our fav things included Christmas movies and cheesy music, and it was a substantial win for the mince pies.

We had a brisk run down to the Venue, where we met Hadas who set us to work with two tasks - one outside and one inside. While the inside team got stuck into clearing the kitchen and packing away food donations, the outside group braved the cold and shifted and spread compost all over the flowerbeds.

Job done it was time for home, and we split the run up with several fitness stations along the way, featuring planks, squats and some toe taps. One hill sprint and a few stretches later and we called it a night. Next week the task is still to be confirmed, but we will be having our Christmas social at the pub after the last run of the year. Hope to see you there for some festive fun!
