Itโ€™s a Grey-t Day for a Group Run

Lambeth Report written by Yianny (he / him)

Arriving at Papa's last night was a portent of the months to come, dark grey skies and the threat of stormy rain for our Group Run and outdoor task!

But that's not how we see things at Lambeth GoodGym "It's not a grey day it's a Grey-t day!" said Effie as we chatted pre run, which was all the motivation we needed to get ready and hit the pavement for the short run down to Larkhall Park.

And so it was that a 'compact' group of seven runners set off to meet Tanika and one member Aimee would join us there. It was a also with an air of celebration that we took off with both Aimee and Maya having completed their Task Force training and have now joined the Lambeth GG Task Force (otherwise known as the League of Superheroes!)

Once we arrived and found the One o Clock club, Tanika was there to greet us with 3 tasks in mind: 1) Shift all the toys and equipment from one storage room to another 2) Weeding around the corners of the playground outside 3) Turning soil in the sunk planter in the playground

We began with Lindy and Shauna heading straight outside to start weeding and the rest of the group made a working chain (see pics) to move all the wonderful toys and equipment - Sticklebricks, who remembers those??! No? Just me then. Tanika did mention some of the toys being VERY old..... ;0(

The task took on a sinister aspect as we were moving toys with one unseen toy chiming in every few minutes with the message "Keep Going...." in a creepy voice. Tilly and Charlotte were looking at each other to check that they also had heard it and it wasn't in their mind and the AA helpfully pointed out that this was a classic scene from many a horror movie. Luckily nothing untoward happened and all 8 GGers were present and correct at the end of the task, but was that in fact just a toy that was speaking or....???

With everything shifted and now Aimee with us (great sleuthing to find us btw) we all headed out just as a bit of rain was coming down and a chilly wind kicking up, but fortunately it didn't last and we could make a big dent in the weeding and some leaf clearance as well.

With the darkness falling and time up we had gathered several large bags of green waste and turned most of the soil with only a small corner remaining and Tanika was very happy with what we had achieved in our time so we were heading off back to base for some and straight home for others.

Thanks everyone, another really fun Tuesday run and remember "Keep Going"....

Juan More Night, Give Me Just Juan More Night !!

Lambeth Report written by Yianny (he / him)

We'll keep it brief this week as it's part 2 of 2 tasks with Juan and Jubilee Primary School.

We kicked off the evening with a brief warm up / activation session and the AA asked everyone to share an interesting fact with the group (it could be about themselves or it could be a general fact but bonus points for the personal ones!) We were 'dazzled' by science (it takes more energy to get from the earth to the moon than the moon to Mars due to gravitational pull), medicine (the first clinical trials conducted were on ships to discover that Vit C cures Scurvy), and Zoology (cats drink salt water and the collective Noun for a group of Zebra's is..... a DAZZLE!)

Manuel also shared a story from childhood so gained thousands of extra points but sadly lost them all as the outcome of the story was Net negative for ornithology.... sorry my friend.

A quick 1.7kms up a VERY slight incline and we were back at the school to see Juan (we love Juan) and he shared that the soil we were due to shift had actually been moved by the tradesmen so we were tasked with binning the old timbers then pebble collecting (seriously) and weeding duty. It turned out that there was a huge amount of weeding once you looked for it, along every wall and up stairs so in the end we maxed out our time and collected a load.

In keeping with the Astronomical theme the run back was like a re-entry to Earth's atmosphere with runners peeling away to head home leaving a crew of 5 arriving back at base (Cape Papa's).

Thanks to Maya for chatting to me about all things Task Force, it's great to have interest in the group and Aimee I'll be sending more details your way soon, and Charlotte for back marking this evening.

Poor Manuel. To gain those points and then to be removed in a flutter. Twitch, twitch.

Water Lovely Evening !!

Lambeth Report written by Yianny (he / him)

Valcie has been kind enough to let us use Papa's Park in Brixton for years to begin our group runs from, it's the perfect place centrally located with a room we can lock our belongings safely in and a play area where we do our warm ups and intros. In return we wanted to help spruce up the place so tonight was our Papa's Park Task! ๐Ÿ’™

Lovely warm weather and late evening sunshine meant perfect conditions and we had a good sized group back to our steady double figures which was great. Super Sam was just back from holiday (he practically ran from Gatwick to Papa's to take part!) so the topic of conversation was travelling with friends and the different personalities that brings and favourite holiday destination. ๐ŸŒž

Some people chose very specific locations (a particular island in the Philippines) while others hedged their bets and picked whole countries (France / Italy) and we had fire (Maldives) and ice (Iceland) so all bases were really covered. Now about splitting the bill at the end of the trip with your friends...... ๐Ÿ˜…

We set off on a brisk 3km ring from Papa's, round to Clapham North, up Bedford Road, left onto Acre Lane and then a wiggle through Trinity Gardens / Brixton High St and back to Papa's. Three members of Lambeth's run team (go Katy, go Kaz) who are travelling to York this weekend were present and keeping themselves primed for York ParkRun and the York 10K! ๐Ÿคฉ

Once we were back our tasks were to weed the outer perimeter of the park, water all the plants and veggies and clear the leaves starting to fall (and of course a quick litter sweep). ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‚

With the size of the group this task was complete in no time at all and despite the offer of a HIIT session to wrap things up folks were sidling towards the gate waving and saying goodbye rather too loudly..... โฑ

Another fun evening in the bag and 3 big black sacks full of leaves to show for our efforts, big thanks to all and see some of you this weekend in York and others next week.

Mindful Flyering.... !!

Lambeth Report written by Yianny (he / him)

We had six people signed up for this evening's flyering task which was to help out the Friends of Loughborough Park spread the word about their litter picking Sundays and opportunities to join the committee (a worthwhile cause we say!)

There was a brief sprinkling of rain just before 6:45pm to freshen the atmosphere and when the AA arrived at Papa's the chat was all about favourite breed of dog - no category needed for the intro then. Many wonderful breeds were mentioned and we didn't even get on to the relevant merits of Pomeranians as dust collectors with Shauna but that can wait for another week.

It was wonderful to see the playground full of kids and families having fun so we squeezed our small group in by the benches for a very short dynamic stretch before heading out on a 1km jog up to Loughborough Park Estate.

7:20pm We rounded the corner from Somerleyton Road with the estate looming over us we couldn't see Anthea but as we turned around with the AA pulling out his phone to call she materialised right in front of us..... incredible stealth action indeed. Anthea kindly explained a bit about the work of the LP Action Group and then we were off to flyer the 5 or 6 large developments mentally preparing ourselves for rapid stair climbs, burning quads and being bitten by letterboxes.

7:38pm The task was over. This has to be a record - all of the blocks covered, no one had even broken a sweat and no fingers nipped by hungry letterboxes - something was amiss. In fact the task was much easier than expected, all the letterboxes were either on the outside of the buildings or just inside the entry doors and Anthea had a 'fireman's key' letting us in (or was it a magic wand.....??)

Aimee rightly sussed that the only sensible thing to do was to conduct a 30 minute wall sit / HIIT session or go to the pub for a quick drink. The vote was pretty close but the pub just won out with it's lovely outdoor seating and cold beverages and at 1.5kms away a perfect distance to work a little thirst up. Despite attempts to add a few metres to the distance Inny suddenly became the personification of Google Maps identifying that we could save valuable seconds by taking a back street up to the pub.

Conversation swirled brilliantly at the Trinity Arms from rewilding the Trinity Gardens Square for GoodGym, pole dancing (ahem), the Lionesses semi final heroics beaming live and recommendations for pubs, walks, apps, gluten free bakeries (Maya over the moon!) and Keeping Up Appearances (the tv classic).

A really fun one - thanks to all and keep an eye out on the socials as Effie will be dropping some serious content in the coming days!
