Breathing is good


Had a good/patient group this morning for my 3rd Q. After losing my breath 5 minutes in, Lighthouse taught me to not count every piece of the cadence. What a difference! (of course) Pigskin also counted in English more than usual to help.

From there, the mix of running and bootcamp leaned too much on the running side. Lesson learned.

Here’s what we did:

Ran to Wells Fargo. Some security camera likely caught 20 Side-straddle hops,15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Don Quixote’s and 20 Flutter kicks. And me learned to breathe while reminiscing Homer’s cadence skills.

Ran to the first parking lot on Westgate. Did a modified Dora, group of 2 sharing 50 Merkins, 100 LBCs and 150 Squats, group of 3 needing to do math and 75 Merkins, 150 LBCs and 225 Squats.

Ran behind the Panera and the smell of coffee, then ran behind the Dunkin Donuts to the entrance to the apartment complex there. Too dark to see the American Flag but it is the thought the counts. Here the Pax was super excited to do 50 WWIIs.

Went to Broad St and took a right, ran down Pump to the Softball field next to the school. Everyone went to a base. Everyone did Merkins. Home plate started with 10 then ran to relieve 1st (every base keeps doing Merkins until relieved) who then ran to relieve 2nd, and so on. Yes, that means 3rd base sucked.

Ran the pathway through the woods. Stopped for 20 seconds midway for some 3rd F. Showed the Pax the spiritual labyrinth there. Worth a visit when you have the time.

Ran back to Pocahontas. Ended up running ~3.25 miles. Will do more WWII’s next time and run less.

Bluegrass Jam benefit for the Fisher House, April 30 (rvabluegrassjam.com for more info)
Blood drive June 4 at Epiphany Lutheran (sign up on red cross site).

Pigskin took out us.

Looking forward to my next Q and seeing whether I did this wordpress thing right.
