Pick with the bunch on the first day of the month...

Colchester Report written by Tav (he/him)

January was a great success for Goodgym Colchester. We battled the elements at times but ended victorious in the January Challenge - meeting our targets and contributing to an incredible national achievement! The totals as they stand are 4230 Good Deeds beating our January 2021 total of 4168 and covering 69,4443 Km in distance. Woah!!

So February is here with a pinch and a punch! Tonight we welcomed Grace and then off we strode. We pinched litter from the ground and then did a nice punchy warm up and training session.

We started by descending Balkerne Hill and made our way along the River Colne to the outside gym at Leisure World. A decent four big bags of litter collected! Bravo!

We then got warm and did some interval training and they may have been a hill involved!

Super job everyone! What a brilliant way to spend a Wednesday evening...

See you Sunday at Junior Parkrun?

Frozen II

Colchester Report written by Tav (he/him)

Over the last few years we have helped plant in the High Street boxes and it is a great familiar task. However, tonight needed some extra effort to bread through the frozen soil and fill in the gaps with flowers ready for spring.

The chilly weather dictated the task: a brisk warm up and a short run (with a detour), speed planting and then a hill run!

The temperature dropped but our spirits where high as we conquered Balkerne Hill like a scene from Rocky...or perhaps more like a scene from Frozen?!

Great to see you all and welcome back Denise.

Wrap Battle

Colchester Report written by Helen

We met at the Mercury and after a quick briefing from Helen, headed across town to Level Best to take part in an epic Christmas Wrap Battle. Tav was away this evening, picking up an award for GoodGym's work in strengthening communities in Essex. Thank you Tav! Congratulations to everyone involved. On arrival at the café, Emma gave us a warm welcome and explained the task. She'd laid out several gift wrapping stations, each beautifully appointed with paper, scissors and tape, a big pile of named presents, and hot and cold drinks. As winter goodgym tasks go, this was pretty much heaven!! At the top of the tree in the wrapping stakes was Crazee Fraze, motoring through his present pile with glee - Sleigh Bob and Tinsel Stu were right behind. DJ Dizzee-Ness made steady progress with the sellotape, and Team Santa, consisting of Ace Alex, Mighty Molly and Lil Charlie completely smashed their goal by running out of gifts to wrap. Last but by no means least was Phil, who managed to wrap several items despite an injured thumb. After jogging back to the theatre, we did a few more laps round the block as it was so cold, then headed home.
