21 Month Streak

A bit of rain never stopped us! For tonight's training session, three GoodGymers headed down the river for an evening walk, while the rest of us made our way on to Roger Bannister Track. During the workout, we managed to dodge a lane of hurdles on one side and scores of student sprinters on the other as we completed a ladder workout - first increasing our sprinting (and recovery!) distances with every round, then decreasing on the way back down.
The walkers, meanwhile, journeyed down to Iffley Lock on the River Thames, befriending a cat along the way.
Both the sprinters and the walkers covered nearly 5k - well done everyone! I hope you've managed to dry off and warm up.
Welcome to GoodGym, Naoise! Thanks for braving the weather for your first session - hope to see you again soon.

This evening we ventured to Botley to blitz the inevitable litter hotspots that build up and hide under the autumn leaves
A slightly chaotic start due to gridlock traffic necessitated chats about the weather and crisp sandwiches (always a good idea).
Once all were present and correct the garland of joy was presented to our newest and most unofficial member Miss Penelope! Thank you Julia for bringing her to meet us all!
We set out lights and litter-pickers in hand to tackle a few grot spots and amassed a large mountain of bags before our time was up. Items found ranged from the depressing (sharps, dealt with safely) to joyous (£10 given to Ben to take to the Halloween quiz), and the inevitable pants!
You are all wonderful and apologies again for my late arrival and stressful witterings!
