2 Month Streak

Sometimes at GoodGym we’re just too darned efficient here in Bath!
Today our mission was at the British Heart Foundation shop in town.
I say the shop … this was our second problem. There are actually currently two shops, and as we’ve done a couple of times in the past the task was to transfer a pile of books between one branch and the other.
The bulk of us arrived, checked in, and loaded up with our first bundle of books. Back outside the shop we met Stephen and set off over to the other branch a few streets away.
In the meantime Dan and Ellie arrived at our original rendezvous, and to compound our nightmare even more, as is it often the trouble in town telecommunications weren’t the best, and somehow we managed to completely miss each other. We’re really sorry guys!!
We only had a handful more books to transport, but by the time we returned to store #1 to get them we’d managed to miss them again.
Finishing up super early we retired to a nearby pub for a coffee/hot chocolate, and where Stephen and Meyrick had a long natter sharing detailed beard-care tips.

Six of us convened up at Claverton for a mildly damp torchlit trail run.
Helen led us on a relatively easy paced 5k around the, um, muddier end of the Bath Skyline route. There’s been a lot of rain lately so it was extra muddy, squidgy and generally wet up there.
We learned a few trail running skills along the way - e.g. how to run on really slippery mud; to run through the puddles instead of around them because your feet were going to end up soaked anyway; and to make sure your torch batteries are charged up before you start.
I’m not sure many of us would have voluntarily gone out on a night like this on our own, but as a group we had a lovely time really - so look out for more runs and training events coming up in the coming weeks..
