Monday's Task was cancelled but this didnt put off Pete, Tabitha, Becka and Liz, who met for a run and workout on Monday evening .
We started with a much needed warm up to stop us shivering, then Tabitha led us on a 4k run through the local area .
We then stopped for a HIIT session , choosing one exercise each : Squat punches , knees to elbows , jumping jacks and Skaters . 40 seconds of intense exercise and 20 seconds rest, repeated three times for each .
We then stretched out and headed off home / to Papagayo for warming hot chocolates and mulled wines , perfect for a cold November evening .

Kilburn Traid had finished their regular sale so called on Goodgym Brent to help clear their stock , ready for a fresh delivery of clothes .
Amy arrived first and was shown what to do , take the clothes off the hangers , dropping them into piles … and don’t waste any time folding things neatly .
Tabitha and Lee arrived soon after and got to work , it was a successful sale so there weren’t too many clothes left . We had to stuff the piles of clothes into huge cardboard boxes ready to be sent to the next store .
Once the clothes were away we put away the hangers too . Becka and Pete joined us , and helped with the final sweep and tidy
The Traid team were very grateful for our help and would love for us to come again next time . This was Tabitha’s 200 mission so we celebrated the achievement across the road with a drink and chips !
Great job everyone

Liz, Tabitha, Louise, Pete and Sabina all met by Papagayo Cafe at 6.45/7pm. Louise had come from East London to join GG Brent for the evening (hoping to build a shed and socialise).
We started with some warm up exercises.It was to be Liz's last session as an official resident of Brent and after several years as run leader, we want to say a huge 'thank you ' to her for her committment, leadership and friendship. It has been a lot of fun and we have done many tasks together helping the communities in Brent :-) (Although Liz will still be coming to Goodgym Brent when she can :-) )
We then ran to Abbey Community Centre and met up with Bekah and Lee, then went with the lovely Simone from the centre to the new building in order to build their shed for them. Unfortunately there was a communication mix up and the security guard did not know we were coming!
After much conversation he decided he would not let us in so we ran back to Papagayo Cafe, not downhearted and finished with drinks and pizza and a great goodbye and thanks and applause to Liz!
See you all next week or soon !

The rain stopped just in time for the GG's to have a dry start to the evening. The group welcomed Kash to her first group run in Brent before beginning a short warm-up.
The group quickly set-off to the task, where they were greeted by Diana and Becka. The tyring task was to weed. Becka, Kash, Pete and Tabitha quickly set to work. Tabitha carefully explained which were weeds and which were flowers. Lee soon joined the team too. Meanwhile, Liz measured the perimeter of the flower bed with a meter rule.
Pete discovered 3 tyres burried under the soil and dug them out. In a short time, the flower bed was weed free and the team began their journey back to base.
Well done team!
