“Do you know of any running or jogging groups in Greenwich? Or even the nearby areas? I see hundred of joggers every day, but can’t find a group to join!”
The Phantom replies:
Regular readers will know that I am allergic to all forms of exercise, but I’ve found a couple of suggestions.
Serpentine look pretty serious stuff – they do hill training every Saturday up Greenwich Park’s most punishing-looking bits. I don’t find their website particularly inviting – but then unless I’m being offered a ride uphill in a comfy chair (and we all know that Old Father Thames has already nabbed Greenwich’s comfy chair) I find all sports websites scary.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous,The Greenwich Tritons are a local triathlon group – swimming, biking and running. Their website suggests novices are welcome.
I DID suggest this fledgling group – a women’s pre-work jogging group for non-marathon runners. Until eagle-eyed Anon pointed it was in Greenwich CTT.
So I’m blushing furiously, but – hey – it’s not such a bad idea. Why not start a group of happy joggers, Kirstie. If you like the idea, let me know and maybe people can email, I’ll pass them onto you and you can all meet up for a run first thing in the morning? ‘Fraid I won’t be joining you though…
