15 Month Streak

We transferred a mountain of shoes from warehouse 1 to warehouse 2. Pouring the bags of shoes onto the floor we found ourselves surrounded by a sea of soles. Our brave Goodgymers were determined to bring order to the unruly footwear flood, grouping the pairs into sizes and bagging up ready to add to crates in the other warehouse.
James, Steve and Laura remained in warehouse 1 with James and Steve upstairs moving and sorting crates of shoes and Laura keeping guard downstairs sorting clothes.
The team made light work of the task which would have taken Jo a heck of a long time on her own. Shoeper duper work everyone!
Making our way back to base the walking group escorted Jo to the pool meadow while the runners took a detour to try and meet at Cov boys and girls club at the same time. The walkers were way too speedy for us and were already getting in their cars by the time we arrived back so we quickly cooled down and said our farewells.
Next week, plogging and jogging along the canal! see you there :)

A fantastic squad of 10 GoodGymers gathered for this evening session to continue our litter picking from where we left off last week - Thankfully we were able to feel our fingers and toes this time! We were joined by Jack from the Central team - great to meet you Jack :) and Allan who we've been missing on our Tuesday sessions.
We split into 2 groups to cover both sides of the road and attacked the paths armed with bags, bag hops and litter pickers, the teams bagged and binned up any rubbish on the paths and sides of the road. It wasn't actually as bad as expected so competition was rife with us fighting over the rubbish - ha! Our most interesting finds were some 2 gloves but not a pair, so annoying when you loose 1 glove, an amusing small placed sponge in a huge puddle, but the rest were the usual haul of cans, bottles, chicken shop wrappers and wet tissue! After half an hour we bagged up our findings, left them near the nearest bins and made our way to the local library to regroup.
We ran back towards Coventry Boys and Girls club with a quick stop for a fitness session in Starley Gardens. Taking it in turns to run around the maze whilst giving the rest of the group an exercise to complete. It was fun and everyone put in lots of effort.
Well done everyone, we've left Ball Hill a litter bit tidier than we found it :)
