I am sure I spotted a Four-leafed Clover in the wheelbarrow...

Chelmsford Report written by Tav (he/him)

...but that would be pushing my luck.

Last night Goodgym Chelmsford responded swiftly to a leafy situation down at St John's Church Hall. As usual we met at The Old Factory Gym with a little history lesson thanks to Joel who then led the group to the Church Hall after a quick sharp warm up and some news - check out the Goodgym Twitter and Facebook for more information or click here

The task was simple and required a big team effort to rake and sweep leaves and dirt from the side paths and driveway - we easily filled the wheelie-bins and a giant green waste bag as well as the compost bins and added to a compost heap in using a dodgy old wheelbarrow.

David is now just 10 days away from his London Marathon when all the training will pay off and Goodgym will be supporting you all the way - the reward and celebration comes a week later so join him and others at Goodgym vs Beer

Stephen, from the Church, was very pleased and grateful for the clear up and joined us for a photo before we dissappeared into the Chelmsford night!

The evening concluded with some sprint relays and strength work and somehow managing to return to base at precisely 8pm!

Another job well done and I hope it sets you up for a great Thursday, Friday and Weekend.

Post-fit note about litter

Colchester Report written by Tav (he/him)

On Tuesday Goodgym Colchester continued their campaign of litter picking, this time along the River Colne between North Station Road and Colne Bank Avenue.

As always we found plenty of brands demoting their products from the undergrowth half-eaten Greggs (a sausage roll), Costa Coffee cup with their plastic lids that will outlive all of us, McDonalds, Twix and Guiness cans. As well as that mess there was a trail of blank yellow post-it notes that may have been better served reminding people not to drop litter!

We managed a big haul and received thanks from a local resident and a moment to chuckle as a one half of a young couple remarked that it was not romantic sat on a smelly bench watching people pick litter around them! There was a strong vinegar vibe down that stretch of River. I hope their next date is more successful...

After the task we said farewell to Phil and headed to Balkerne Hill for a quick lung buster. Frazer was particularly pleased as he had already smashed a fair few hills in a pre-goodgym run!

See you all next week and enjoy your weekends.
