Green Thumbs and Run Drums: GoodGym's Garden Sprint

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

Tuesday evening, an intrepid group of GoodGym members assembled at the historic Phoenix Cinema with a dual mission: to help out at Northway Gardens and to get a good workout in the process. The warm summer air was perfect for running, and there was a palpable sense of camaraderie as the group gathered for a warm-up and discussed their summer plans.

Among the group were George and Phil, new to GoodGym, with George impressively having run all the way from home. Moya kindly volunteered to be the back marker, ensuring no one was left behind as the group set off at a gentle pace, weaving through East Finchley tube station and the quiet backstreets.

Once sufficiently warmed up, the group engaged in some Indian running, with sprints to the front keeping everyone on their toes. The sun was setting, casting a golden hue over the evening—a perfect backdrop for a run in a T-shirt.

Upon reaching Northway Gardens, the group met Brian, their host for the evening. Brian explained the tasks ahead and shared a bit of history: the gardens along Mutton Brook used to be maintained by four groundsmen, but now rely on community volunteers due to budget cuts.

The team split into two groups: one tackled the overgrown vegetation along the bank of the stream, while the other started on a disused flower bed, preparing it for replanting. With dedication and teamwork, they cleared the bed, spread mulch, and made the area ready for new plants. It was a rewarding experience, knowing their efforts would help rejuvenate the gardens for everyone to enjoy.

As the work wrapped up, the group headed back towards the Phoenix, incorporating some paired sprints around a circular track for a final burst of energy. It was a magnificent effort from everyone involved, with special kudos to George and Phil for their enthusiasm, Moya for ensuring the group stayed together, Theo for capturing the evening in photos, and Rachael, the ever-reliable stalwart of the team.

In the end, the evening was a perfect blend of fitness, community service, and socializing. GoodGym had not only contributed to the upkeep of Northway Gardens but also strengthened the bonds within their own group, proving once again that a little community spirit goes a long way.

Running into Fun: GoodGym Sprints into Community Spirit at Coppetts Wood

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

It was a day of triumph both for nature lovers and football fans as GoodGym Barnet joined the Coppetts Wood Festival on a sunny day that also saw England clinch a victory against Serbia in the European championships. The festival buzzed with community spirit, inviting everyone to dive into the beauty of Coppetts Wood and celebrate local initiatives. Amidst the towering oaks, festival-goers enjoyed a puppet show, face painting, and live music, while savoring BBQ treats and craft beer. GoodGym’s Paul Salman and newcomer Sanchita shared the exciting journey of Barnet’s Tiny Forest, inspiring many to roll up their sleeves for the environment. The day was more than just fun; it was a call to action. Engaging chats with locals like a Morris dancer who promotes safe cycling revealed a collective drive for a greener, more active community. check out his hurdy-gurdy! So why not jump in? Whether it’s supporting a Tiny Forest or grooving with Morris dancers, your local community is the place to be. Let’s keep the spirit alive and kick goals for nature and neighborhood alike!

Hedge Avengers: The Guardians of Stephens House Gardens

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

This Tuesday, the legendary GoodGym Barnet team assembled for a mission of epic proportions. Our adventure began at the Phoenix Cinema, a beacon of inspiration, where we prepared to tackle the untamed wilderness of Stephens House Gardens. Leading this valiant crew was Paul our fearless run leader, and his trusty sidekick, Gus the Wonder Dog.

In our ranks, we had the extraordinary , Yesika a distinguished athlete hailing from the heart of Mexico. Known for her lightning speed and unwavering spirit, she was a true asset to our heroic endeavor. Beside her ranMoyaour elite champion, celebrated as one of our best female runners with a pace that could outrun the wind itself. And let's not forget Theodore, a steadfast contributor to GoodGym Barnet, whose dedication and enthusiasm are unmatched.

Upon reaching Stephens House Gardens, we were greeted by the benevolent hosts, Helen and Julian, who guided us to our mission's battleground: the overgrown boundary fence. Armed with clippers, shears, and lopers, we transformed from mere mortals into hedge-hacking heroes. Each snip and slice revealed the glorious new railings, hidden beneath a jungle of foliage.

Having conquered the 2.5 km run from the Phoenix, our muscles were primed and ready for action. With the finesse of seasoned warriors, we attacked the burgeoning hedge, transforming the tangled mess into a masterpiece of manicured perfection. The weather, ever our ally, blessed us with clear skies and perfect running conditions, as if nature itself applauded our efforts.

Once the battlefield was cleared, we gathered the spoils of our labor—the cuttings—and returned them to the park for composting, ensuring the circle of life continued. This triumph granted us the opportunity to embark on a gentle victory lap around the park's perimeter, basking in the glory of our achievement.

With our mission complete, our heroes embarked on the return journey to the Phoenix, where a well-deserved warm-down awaited. The day was marked by camaraderie, unparalleled effort, and the undeniable heroism of the GoodGym Barnet team.

keep running and doing good!
