11 Goodgymers walked and ran to Coffee Tots in The Wave swimming pool for some festive fun on a damp Tuesday in December.
After a dynamic warm up in the car park, which included some joyful skipping, walking lunges and fast feet, we made our way to The Wave, looping back every so often to get our steps in.
When we arrived, Graeme had already started hanging decorations from the ceiling and Jackie was busy untangling some very tangled baubles and garlands. The rest of the group got to work assembling paper decorations, hanging garlands and putting up decorations made by the children.
Nigel had very kindly prepared us some festive nibbles to keep us going during the task, including a mincemeat tree and reindeer, as well some other yummy nibbly treats.
With the Coffee Tots café looking very festive, and with festively full tummies, we made our way slowly back to the CBGC for a stretch and cool down.
Thanks for having us Nigel and Coffee Tots, we are all feeling nicely festive now.

7 Goodgymers walked and ran to Clothing Coventry for another evening of epic sorting. This time around it was sorting a mountain of jumper donations into sizes so they are ready to be distributed, hopefully just in time for the cold snap! There were also lots of bags to be sorted into different sizes so they can be used for giving out bags of clothes to people who need them.
Nigel and James made light work of the bag sorting, whilst the rest of the group made a dent in the huge pile of jumpers, hopefully making the warehouse space more manageable for staff and volunteers to work around.
Bonus goodgym points if you know the song from the report title!

Tonight ten Goodgymers came ready to give a helping hand to Clothing Coventry. We welcomed back Susanne for one night only as she flies back to Germany this week - it was great to have you with us tonight!
We came loaded with donations and bags which Jackie, Nigel and Susanne walked ahead with, leaving the runners to warm up. Once we arrived, we gathered inside and the task owner, Jo, dished out the to do list. With the outside being a bit wet we remained inside this eve and squeezing into every nook and cranny, we sorted the piles that needed our attention including coats, mens clothes and shoes.
Once we were done Nigel and Jackie started on the walk back with Laura P joining to save her legs after a mammoth run on Saturday. They were followed by the rest of us who ran back to base for our cool down.
Thanks for all you efforts tonight everyone :) Hope to see you all next week!

A valiant group of 11 Goodgymers assembled to assist Feeding Coventry this evening.
Karen was there to welcome us and we set to work to conquer lots of leaves and declutter cupboards.
Armed with rakes and brushes, Jackie, Laura, James and Lil battled the autumn leaves like knights in shining armour, clearing the path and piling the leaves in one area to decompose.
The rest of the possy headed indoors to tackle the cupboard conundrum. The cupboard was overflowing with a mixture of tat, toys and forgotten treasures (a very antique bingo caller) which we emptied, sorted and then started to put back.
The team did a grand job sweeping up the leaves and restoring order to the cupboards. Karen was extremely happy with the progress we had made and our efforts will make it a lot easier for them to finish off.
Well done everyone!

Georgia Knights run a race with GoodGym for the first time.
Georgia has done their first race with GoodGym. Performing on the day is a lot of pressure; Georgia's dealt with the nerves and turned up on the day to make it happen.
