GoodGymalayan Balsam

York Report written by Ed Woollard (He/Him)

There was something for everyone at this week's Group Run with cycling, walking, steady and faster options on offer for a fantastic 24 GGers. We started by welcoming first timer Sophie who set off with Vicky et al as part of the walking crew 👋. We also announced the first half of the GoodGymmer of the month award with Mitch getting his turn in the frame for getting stuck in to a load of Good deeds and leading some missions. Well done Mitch 👏

Before setting off, we warmed up with a nod to World Bicycle Day (according to Amy's Garmin) by pretending to ride our imaginary bicycles around the CVS car park, much to the dismay of the more avid cyclists amongst us 🚲. Then it was off the Fulford Ings for Balsam Bashing Round 2!

At the task we were joined by Emma and a rather late Ben, who looked like he'd put in some serious effort to try and catch up with the running crew🏃‍♂! Nicola from St Nicks gave out a brief overview to those who were making their Balsam Bashing debut whilst the more seasoned veterans got stuck straight in.

Anna and Sophie made a fab start and soon got to work pulling out what they thought was Balsam left, right and centre, before Ed pointed out that what they had been pulling out was unfortunately something else! Don't worry guys, there were a few others making the same mistake

There's not too much else that can be said about Balsam that hasn't been said before, but there was much debate over the correct method as well as plenty of new pun options for future run reports. By the way, this week's genius word play came from Abi, not me!

Before too long it was time to head back to base, but not before a quick plank race on millennium field, with some very questionable planks and some very eager plankers

When we got back to CVS we were able to dish out the second half of our GGer of the month award to Lyndsey who had also completed a shed load of Good Deeds over the last couple of months as well as keeping the Friday Lunch Hill Rep Club alive 💪

Fab sesh everyone. See you next week for the third and final bash

April showers bring GoodGym flowers, but first, let's pick up litter for hours!

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

A few goodgym members decided to do some litter picking in their local areas could be a local Park or Street at a time of their convenience during April. Quite often this is well received by local people and has a knock on positive effect. Let’s look to do it again in May!

Paul said

My contribution this month was on Blackheath where I picked litter from one of the larger fields bounded on each side by roads - a couple of bags worth of take away detritus was picked from the verges. I had a couple of chats with passers by about GoodGym

Thumbs Up for GoodGym's March Litter Pickers!

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

Throughout the month of March, members of GoodGym independently embarked on litter-picking missions in their local communities. Armed with gloves and bags, these dedicated volunteers hit the streets, parks, and trails, gathering litter and debris to keep their neighbourhoods clean and green. With thumbs ready for action, GoodGym members demonstrated their commitment to both fitness and environmental stewardship, making a tangible difference.

One of the things that I do ahead of Catford parkrun most Saturday’s is the ‘course check’, while it is intended as a check for trip hazards and obstructions, I often get there earlier than I need to and pick up litter too as I wander around the beautiful Mountsfield Park. I spent an hour or so on the  penultimate Saturday of March litter picking, probably a black bin bag’s worth - it was mainly takeaway detritus, but Corona lager was clearly on offer somewhere locally as it was the choice of the park drinker that weekend.

Fishergate's Friends

York Report written by Ed Woollard (He/Him)

The promise of sweeties tempted 27 GGers out on a chilly March evening to lend a hand to the front garden at Fishergate Primary School, which was in need of a bit of a face-lift.

We started proceedings by numbering off whilst listing things to be afraid of. Lyndsey conveniently listed her number (13) as something to fear, but we also Jamie's suggestion of FOMO and Joanna's fear of decision making as some great examples. It was then time for the short dash across to the task with Ed leading a sea of red shirts, and Vicky bringing up the rear.

At the task we were joined by Martin, Jenna, Anna and Charlotte and soon got stuck into the gardening. Rich declared himself the man with the bin and collected the various bits of rubbish dotted around, whilst others got stuck into weeding, pruning and clearing.

With everyone working hard on the ground to get the garden looking 👌, Mitch decided he'd think outside the box and look higher up for his opportunity to make a difference. A rogue black bin bag stuck up a tree was the goal and it was no match for Mitch armed with a spade, who had acted against all advice and climbed the tree to retrieve it.

Opportunities for further weeding and pruning were dwindling as the task wore on, so mind's started think about potential future tasks with Rich spotting a tree guard that looked like it was in need of removal. Obviously GG York are absolute pros at tree guard removal nowadays!

After a few last minute bits of weeding it was time for a team photo before heading off for Vicky's fitness sesh - Head, Shoulders, Knees and Cones! The game involved moving around a circle of cones before dashing into the middle to pick up a sweet reward. The sweets dwindled as the session went on, which led to a bit of pushing and shoving to get the most in demand sweets.

We then headed back to CVS for a photo with the coveted Golden Trowel (the prize for the most good deeds done in the January Challenge) and then sampled some of Nikki's delicious fudge which also turned out to be part of your 5-a-day 😋

Great session everyone 💪
