We got started at 5:30 on the dot.

Warm up:

10 jumping jacks IC

5 good mornings IC

Side lunge stretch to Runner stretch w/chest openers to straight split leg (hold each position for a count of 8)-do both sides.

While we stretched we reflected on the fact that this workout was the workout I Qed exactly a year ago during our Virtual Workouts during quarantine, back when we were wondering when we would all get to be together again. It’s been a year, and I for one am grateful for FiA and how it had helped me physically and mentally these last 365 days.

The Thang: we headed over to the large parking lot and partnered up. One person runs while the other completes each exercise until partner returns.

1x Jog down to the end of the lot, sprint back to start

  • Around the world pushups

2x jog out, sprint back while partner does first exercise for first sprint and switches to the next exercise for the second sprint.

  • Around the world pushups
  • squats on curb

3x jog out sprint back

  • Around the world pushups
  • Curb squats
  • plank jacks

4x jog out sprint back

Happy Earth Day. I shared “All Things Bright and Beautiful” by Cecil Alexander. Here are the first two stanzas:

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

Thank you for joining me this brisk spring morning!
