Five Good Gym runners came together to help Martin Primary School and it’s forest paths. We gathered at Phoenix cinema to have a chat and a warmup outside. It was a beautiful warm summers day, a great day for a nice short run along the High Street to the school. Where we met Simone who had gone directly from home, and John, who had the tools for the job. The school has developed a piece of land adjacent to playing fields, which is an amazing woodland to learn about nature. Full of fruit trees, compostable toilets, mud kitchens, hammocks and best of all a parachute tent nestled among the trees. It makes you want to be a kid again! We set about our work, shovelling woodchip into the wheelbarrows and distributing it along the path and well used spaces. It was wheely good fun! We finished at the school and did some warmup yoga before running back to the Phoenix Cinema.
Thanks for coming running and doing some good!
PS how about signing up for this months, litter pick? Any time anywhere..

What a turn out this evening!
8 GGers took part in our ongoing visit to the Tiny Forest with today's focus being removing weeds and recording wildlife.
Big shout outs of the evening go to (drum roll, please!!!) : - Simone who brought water for the thirsty runners! - Ruslan who attended his first ever session and hopefully the first of plenty! Did you know you get an amazing black t-shirt when you complete 50 good deeds? you've got this Ruslan, 49 to go! - Wendy for venturing to "south" Barnet and coming fully equipped with gloves, garden kneeler and weeding tools! she has definitely done some gardening before! - Kirsten for resuming her Tuesday's with us! we've missed you! - Niki for completing 89 good deeds! She means business! how nice would it be to finish your week with 90 ? We can help you with that, there's a mission at the Food Bank Aid this friday and this Sunday! - Jyo for doing two volunteering sessions today! you're a trooper! she has volunteer at the Food Bank Aid this morning and still had energy to do some weeding! - Rachel for doubling up as back marker and Dog leader (Kirsten's dog!)! Great running and strength effort!
Are you still wondering about the underwear? Well, it's a good story that Jyo told us! There's a school involved with the Tiny project that wanted to show students how things decay over time. So yes, apparently students are super interested to know how a pair of (clean or dirty, who knows!) underwear decays and dug one in the middle of the tiny forest (look for the "underwear" sign on the pictures)
Great work everyone today!
Keep it up and see you on Friday, Sunday and/ or next Tuesday.- plenty of options to increase your deed count!

What a turn up we had this Tuesday in Barnet with dedicated GoodGymers coming from afar to witness and take part in the greatest Litter Picker army brigade we've had this year (so far!).
Thanks John and Jacqueline for coming out of your GG boroughs to spread the joy you get from the multiple missions you're completing in your area. - We aspire to catch up with your collective +900 GG deeds by...by...by......very soon! :)
We've had no Leaflets to distribute for The Phoenix cinema so we decided on a group run around Cherry Tree Wood and some litter picking in the same area.
Litter did we know though that Moya would WOW us with an energetic warm up and short training session which was recorded as part of her UK Athletics Run Leader training. - She is stepping up quickly within the GG ladder so we can keep on growing GG Barnet....THANK YOU! As in all productions (or so they say)...film directors deserve a mention, and clearly Antonio deserves one for the best training session filmed with amazing angles and perfect lighting throughout... GREAT CONTRIBUTION!
Probably jealous that Moya was taking the limelight, Paul didn't doubt for a moment to offer to lead a 10 minutes yoga session at the end of the evening. Aren't we lucky in Barnet ??? Picture this: 12 GGers wearing our red t-shirt taking the center stage in the middle of Cherry Tree Wood oblivious of all onlookers, focusing on their breathing and their best down dog pose as the sun was coming down. Yeah, you got it, a powerful MOB campaign to recruit more GGers! We had a handful of people approaching us during the evening asking what was all that about! To what we happily answered: Woah-oh, the hokey cokey!! ...Clearly, our yoga skills need fine tunning so watch out for Paul online yoga sessions and he will make sure to take you from a Hokey Cokey to proper Yoga progamme in no time!.
Well done everyone, you make a difference every time you come out! To our community, to those around you and to your own wellbeing! Keep it up!
