Against the Wind


7 able bodied warriors including yours truly set out on a great adventure in the howling winds of Short Pump, VA.

COP: Mosey two times around the football field, Don Quixotes, Side Straddle hops, Freddie Mercuries, Merkins and Arm Circles.

E1: Mosey to front of school. Do each exercise 40 seconds on, 20 seconds off. Balls to the wall, Donkey kicks, Wall sits, plank and mountain climbers. Repeated balls to the wall and donkey kicks.

E2: Mosey to football field. 10 burpees at the 10 yard line, 20 WWIIs at the 20, 30 merkins, 40 jump squats, 50 2 count flutter kicks. Reverso after a quick rest.

E3: Mosey to school courtyard and use cards to determine exercises. These include crabcakes, diamond merkins, heels to heaven and LBCs. The cards kept blowing around making this difficult to sustain.

E4: Mosey to pickleball court. First bear crawl halfway down and back. Second, lunge 3/4 way and back. Lastly wheelbarrow all the way and back.

E5/6: Go to little pavilion. Do 3 sets of 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off of dips. Mosey to parking lot and finish with round of American hammers and merkins.

Closed in prayer. This is my first Q since before I broke my ankle on 12/26. It is good to be back and let’s put those with health issues in our prayers. Have a productive and enjoyable weekend.

Peace out.
