18 polar bears (including 1 visitor from Raleigh…a Bills fan for Wilson) removed a layer or two (except for Wilson) and enjoyed the relative warmth of NoToll on this Sunny and 70 morning in the RVA. YHC has the Q and had baseball on the mind with Spring Training gearing up. Thus, here is what followed:
Mosey to the backlot and around the parking lot and circle up for COP, including:
- Imperial Walkers
- Flutter Kicks
9-innings of Pain. In baseball you need 6 outs to complete an inning. Today, that equated to 6 exercises, 10 reps each. Exercises were:
- Box jumps
- Ball Dippers (2-ct)
- Box Cutters
Then, to complete the inning – sprint across the field and back. Plank for six with various plank-o-rama while waiting. Repeat x 9 for our game.
Oh, and for those critical late innings, we added some Burpees. 1 for the 7th, 2 for the 8th and 5 for the closer in the 9th.
Mosey back to the basketball courts for Mary, which included 51 Freddie Mercuries IC (varying speeds) and 30 seconds of Superman.
COT, Number-Rama, Name-a-Rama and YHC took us out.
It’s never too early to start thinking about Spring and Baseball. With the football season over, YHC wanted to get things started with that today. Great work by all. Those ball dippers added up quickly.
The 51 FMs were tough too. They were in honor of Micheal Medlin – a St Edwards parent who we lost on Friday at the way-too-young age of 51. It’s tragic. It’s important that we not only stand by each other and lift the family up with help and prayers, but also that we take time and perspective to appreciate and take advantage of what we have every single day. It is a blessing!!
