A run report - because I've run out of novel puns about books

York Report written by James Tilburn

Six Goodgymmers ran, walked and cycled to the Tang Hall Library once again to set up the monthly book sale.

Initially it looked like there wouldn't be much to do this month because the sale was already set up. Plan B was to get everyone doing laps of the building but luckily for the rest of the group, it turned out there was plenty they needed help with.

We got to work setting up more tables and sorting the books that were already out and in the end added another twenty or more boxes to the sale. Even with Mitch getting distracted by a tiny book of Victorian smut we managed to finish ten minutes early, a great team effort.

This task has been going for several months now and it was pleasing to see the Jeremy Clarkson book remains unsold. There were plenty of interesting new finds too - if you're into both horses and alternative medicine get down to Tang Hall tomorrow and you'll find plenty of books combining those interests in a pleasing if scientifically unproven way.

๐Ÿฅต Too hot to handle ๐Ÿธ

York Report written by Nicky Woodall (she/her)

โ˜€ 26 excellent GoodGymmers gathered for our third and final bank holiday group run of the month. And a lovely sunny evening it was too.

๐Ÿ‘‹ We were thrilled to welcome Michaela for her first group run, and to see Louise whoโ€™s visiting up from London.

๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™‚ Sadly, I completely forgot to bring the cape for Edโ€™s very impressive 300th good deed so that glorious moment/photo op is yet to come. Well done though ๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿฅ” We named, numbered and warmed up with a slightly ad hoc question (which fit with my slightly disorganised mind this evening). In honour of it being whitsun weekend, we offered our favourite comedian and/or potato dishes. There were some very reputable comedians cited but personally, it also just reminded me how many great ways there are you serve potatoes (dauphinois, hash browns, croquettes), which in turn made me pretty hungry.

๐ŸŽ Ed led the run to Holgate Community Orchard where we marvelled in the progress thatโ€™s been made in the 18-ish months that weโ€™ve been coming here. The first part of the patch is blooming with wildflowers so we got stuck into the second. One job there was to lop nettles, dig brambles and remove bindweed. Meanwhile, another group got stuck in removing stones from a stony patch.

๐Ÿงฒ A third group were on random metal object extraction duties. Door handles/hinges and horseshoes were among their finds, with some impressive digging to get them out. More natural finds were a potato plant by Charlotte (which Helen thinks must have been there for decades) and a frog by Bernie. We canโ€™t wait to see how this part of the orchard turns out and weโ€™re particularly excited to hear more about the bee initiatives there ๐Ÿ

๐Ÿ—ป Some excellent work was done during our time there tonight, before we headed to Windmill Rise for some hill reps. We did these in pairs and included a warm up and cool down plus three higher intensity reps in the middle.

๐Ÿป With that, it was time to head back to base and home/on to the pub.

๐ŸŒบ Weโ€™ve got a few sessions coming up this week, including this one at North Street Gardens on Wednesday evening with Barbara so do sign up and join us if you can.
