Sea La Vie !

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

3 of us plus Simba turned up at the earlier time of 08:45 to do a beach clean. Thank you so much.

Huge kudos to Barbara and Stephen for supporting this community mission today - It proved very worthwhile and what we are all about at GoodGym - Giving to our local community without hesitation.

Ongoing tech issues mean that I cant upload a photo - I have no idea what photo will appear but it wont be anything like the ones I took which is sad as they are amazing - look out on whats app for them

See you next time - you missed a banger !

Sea You Later

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Worthing Run Fest dawned sunny and relatively still on in our beautiful town.

For the second year running, GoodGym had been asked to give out the finishers medals which we were very happy to agree to. Stephen was also harpooned to volunteer by one of the organisers, Jade whose charms were clearly more powerful than my pleas for volunteers - but wait - he ended up in the baggage tent so maybe karma did prevail somewhere !

A number of our Worthing GoodGymers were participating in the event.

Natascha, Daisy Greg ( aka Craig) Sarah, Sue A and Mr R John ran in the 10K whilst Sue W and Jay took on the mighty half marathon. Well done to you all . You are all our superstars !

Our intrepid runners all did brilliantly with several personal best times- Notably Jay, who ran London just 7 days ago got a PB . Massive kudos to you, our very own super hero - Cake man!

The other mini super hero of the day was Jemima ( mini me Tamsin ) who was super excited to be helping with the medals, and ended up fronting our team and giving out the medals and the trophy to the winners.

Finally, big shout out to Daisy and John who ran and then volunteered too.

So sorry for the lateness of this report. The Central GG tech team did a upgrade last week of the website which resulted in multiple bugs meaning it was impossible to upload a report until just now.

Looking forward to seeing you all in the next few weeks. With 2 more bank holidays in May we will also be actively volunteering on Wednesdays too.

Thank you for your support and patience

Julia xx

Munching on the brunch

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Post parkrun reward

Following the very successful parkrun we all walked along the prom, basking in the sunshine to Munch where we decided to rearrange the furniture to suit the GG worthing 'as one' ethos :) Luckily we narrowly got away with it despite a few stern words from chef Theresa.

With breakfast already pre ordered it was a ( relatively ) straight forward ordering of drinks etc. We all did slide down in our chairs when Stephen asked to alter his order ( although he was oblivious of our concern! ) but yet again, Theresa ( happily) agreed to the last minute change.

it was really lovely to see our very own mini Christmas star Jemima come along with Tamsin and what a great photo of her and of everyone by the tree:)

There were also very welcome guest appearances from Natacha , Pauls husband John, plus Nick who has been stuck on 67 good deeds for around 4 years - ha ha !

Save the date

Watch this space for our new years curry party on January 28th which our social secretary, Tamsin and I will be organising early in the new year.

Plus Bank Holiday Monday - walk and chat 09:30

Wishing you a very warm and cosy Christmas filled with love and good times.

Fitness ? Shell yeah !

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

On a stunning Sunday morning 5 of us met up for our monthly fitness session.

Worthing did not disappoint with its sunny weather. blue skies, turquoise sea and a happy people along the prom.

After a warm up around the pier we went into a lower and upper body EMOM ( Every minute on the minute ) We did 4 rounds and finished with a team buyout challenge with everyone helping each other to complete 100 reps of their chosen move.

It was really was an absolute delight to be with this gorgeous bunch TamsinAnneSarahStephen

Next months date to be announced in the next few days :)

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Sunshine and social

Following a 4 day platinum Jubilee weekend, GoodGym Worthing moved the 4 day extravaganza to 5 !

Tonight we combined a good deed with a social - what a perfect combination 👌 and we turned out in royal numbers!

On parade today we had (imagine a drum roll).....

Duncan, Gillybean,TamsinLucy, Sue, Anne Paul, Sarah Jay ,Stephen, Katharine John and Ricky

It was lovely to see so many familiar faces and I think it's true to say everyone enjoyed a great chat with each other whilst also doing some good stuff for the local community.

We were warmly welcomed back to the Bugcycle garden by Creative Wave's Nadia and Nessie. Tonights main task was to clear the 'lounge' area ready for a pergola to be built on Tuesday We also were weeding , watering and moving metal fencing and moving a decked wooden platform to its new home.

The majority of the team formed a chain of pure muscle to relocate some heavy rocks to make room for the pergola whilst others busiest themselves in various other ways around the garden.

One hour later and after a GG flag group photo we headed down to the communal barbeque's on Beach Green Despite a chill in the air, the sun shone and we all enjoyed sharing food and drink together. Here's to the next one in a month's time.

Stephen Blaine completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym.

Stephen has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

Having a ball at Worthing Run Fest

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

The Best of Both

What better way to celebrate Worthing Run Fest than to volunteer to give medals out to members of our GG Team who were running in the 10k and half marathon.

Massive thank you to my volunteer team Barbara, Belinda, Ros, Steve , on medal duty and Daisy, Duncan and Lucy on shoe chip duty.

Many congratulations to all the runners ..... John, Ricky , Sue , Natacha, Jay, Paul, and Anne. Hopefully there were some PB times there somewhere !

What an absolute pleasure of a morning .

Every litt'er counts

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

The numbers game

What a wonderful turn out this evening with 14 of us. Such a great turn out that we couldn't stop talking long enough to get out of the door! So many exciting topics to talk about! This Friday we will have our delayed party with 22 of us sitting down to a festive meal together. The theme is 'dressed to impress'

We also discussed the January and took a gulp at the KM challenge we have of 3,075 km, We currently are at just over 2.000 so its going to take a massive commitment from us all to reach our goal. Get those steps in and don't forget to start and upload your strava! Dont forget you can also manually upload too. Cycling also counts too so you can also jump on the bike too !

On the plus side it looks as if we are well on track to reach our 52 good deed goal :)

Pier pressure

We headed off in 2 groups of walkers and runners and then almost ( all) met up at the pier. Thank you to John for chasing Stephen and the litter pickers down :)

Off the back of the running, we turned the session round and did the fitness first tonight. It was a partner based drill with 1 person running laps around the pier whilst the other did a variety of functional bodyweight strength exercises ( shuttle runs, press ups, tricep dips, bunny jumps, squats, burpees and squat jumps.

*Not a load of rubbish *

Tonight, I was hoping, that we could find any warmth there was, under the Pavilion end of the pier and also under the Lido. This is where the litter is often left and gathers. Getting rid of any litter on the beach is a great thing to do. On this occasion there wasn't a lot to do but now there's even less!

Star of the day

Special mention to Tamsin who did her own good deed tonight and that was sorting out our delayed Christmas meal and all the endless admin and financial complications it involves. THANK YOU Tamsin. We REALLY do appreciate it.

....Is it a cheeky question to ask if you will arrange this years too ? We could give you a title if it helps? You choose and you have the job!

See most of you Friday night in your glad rags and if not next Monday :)

Take the strain

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Our Christmas Fun

On our last session before Christmas it was all about the fun! With our Christmas meal postponed it was even more important to ensure we had a good laugh tonight.

We had a walk and run option for the warm up but both groups headed around our gorgeous pier. We were so lucky as it was a beautiful calm, mild starlit evening.

We started with a tug of war and followed it with some traditional sports day games including egg and spoon, sack race, bean bag on your head, another round of tug of war and finishing with throwing the bean bag.

it was a lovely, happy way to finish the GG Worthing year.

Raking it in

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

*F A B- U - L O U S turnout - Thank you ! *

What a wonderful turn out it was tonight. Honestly it was brilliant!

We had received an SOS call for help from Gwenn in the parks department to help with some raking and fine, tooth comb weeding of an area in the park which has been lined up for some 'Prarie planting' ( perennial ornamental late flowering grasses)

On a very chilly but, thankfully, still evening I feel i need to give a big shout out to each and everyone of ALL the team tonight.

Round of applause

  • Rosalind So good to see you every week now that you are off shifts :)
  • Duncan Thanks so much for making the effort to get to every task you can and for bringing GG to Worthing!

  • Sue Thanks for pulling yourself out of your lovely warm flat!
  • Anne Always bringing the smile and the hard work. Thank you for always just doing it!
  • Paul It must be cold if Paul has his leggings on!
  • Barbara Well done for finding your way from Brooklands to us !
  • Paula Yee haaa lovely lady :) Always great to have your energy.
  • John Thank you for all the great photos and for the endless humour you bring to the group!
  • Natacha Yes Natacha - great to see you at a task again and not just for the burger :)
  • Sue Lovely to see you again and get well soon from your covid.

  • Stephen Great to see you at a task again.

And Finally

Hudson Gleeson - Great to see you at your debut appearance at Good Gym - woof woof. Less jumping next time please!!

Wrapping it up

Under the watchful eyes of Gwenn and Erin from the town hall we got down to the business of precision weeding and trying to stop any pesky weeds growing again! This involved raking and sifting and bagging the debris.

When it got cold we went off round the park for laps of either running or walking until the cold got a bit too much and 1 hour later we called it a day.

After loading the rakes into the car having a final photo and giving promises to return we all headed off in different directions ( no burgers tonight! )
