Before school:

We started with the disclaimer, then warmed up: good mornings, runners stretch, arm circles, butt kickers, high knees.

Then we took the bus to school (LA Freeway).

We divided into 4 groups of 3 and went to class.  Each class had 4 exercises that we did for 45 seconds with a 15 second rest in-between (except for Math).  In order to switch classes, we had to go down the hall (run the small loop).
