3 Month Streak

With a small group pre meet of just two at Beer & Burger, Tabitha led the group of Josh at a blistering pace in training for future race pace. To the welcome sight of Samina & Cherian patiently waiting at the task site. Only arriving to learn the famed powerful jet washer was feeling a little under the weather and wasn't showing face for work that night.
Not to be deterred Group Leader Tabitha got into gear with the back up task of improving the cleanliness and safety of the children's play area at the school. The group collected Beatriz and Lee to fill the team at full-strength.
Tools of instruction in hand the battle of astro turf versus sand grains begun. Quickly learning how to optimise the group put manufacturing lines to shame with efficency at top regard... after safety. With teamwork, learnings from mistakes and a few beads of sweat, the group turned the playgrounds undesired desert into appropriate child's play areas clean from sand.
After such a contribution the team parted ways, Samina, Beatriz, and Cherian home. Whilst Tabitha took Josh on a training run through the rolling hills of Gladstone Park. Only for backmarker, Lee the athlete he is to make it to Beer & Burger first!

The fabulous foursome of Tabitha, Samina, Lee and Josh set off adventuring from Brent Mencap on the brisk Monday evening. Not before celebrating Tabitha's 250th good gym, which she showed up in style in 5 different good gym shirts. One shirt each to represent 50 missions she completed. With no injuries to report, hands full with hundreds of flyers advertising the range of activities being put on at the Mencap particularly targeting the socially isolated. With multiple pages to be delivered to each door, it took a partnership of folding and delivering between them all. The team wrapped up with a light jog back to Beer & Burger to finish the night with a drink and hot chips.

A small group of Tabitha, Pete, Lee & Josh converged outside Beer & Burger ready to warm up. Exhaling plumes of smoke as the air reacted to the negative temperatures.
A needed light jog down to Brent Mencap to get the blood flowing where Samina was waiting patiently doing her own set of squats keeping warm. We welcomed Beatriz to their first good gym Brent session before Becca arrived to round off the group.
Half the team kept warm by running down and around Gladstone Park. Whilst the other half completed the final session off shredding copious reeves of paper. With shredders who are temperamental at best, but deliver a wondrous job with a little care and affection. The team embraced the workload with time available for a group Hiit to wrap up the session. A number of unique and new Hiit movements suggested and embraced, only best delivered to certain tunes such as Eye of the Tiger.
A final short jog back to Beer & Burger to celebrate the past birthdays of the month!

Goodgym Brent met in Willesden for the first Monday Brent Goodgym of 2024, it was on the coldest day of the year so far . As we gathered, only one hero remembered gloves – note to self: gloves are as essential as enthusiasm.
After a warm-up that felt more like a survival tactic, we ran 2 km to Brent Mencap's office. There were two tasks so we split into two teams : clean and shred . Samina and Lee were the shred team and had files of confidential waste to shred , ready to recycle . Tabitha , Josh and Pete were Team Clean and they wiped bannisters and mopped the stairs .
Time flew and in no time at all we were ready to call it a day, posed with the four huge bags of shredded material , and jogged back to willesden green for a well deserved drink and portion of chips . Great work everyone !
