I came prepared for an old fashioned coupon beatdown. However, this week proved to be filled with COVID struggles for many PAX and all of them doing what’s best, staying home and riding out the wave. Upon arrival to AO Mastodon, it was lonely but the sun was out and birds were chirping. I thought, let’s mosey and call some exercises in the go. We took the following route:

Along the route we stopped for the following:

Merkins x25

Burpees x25

Donut (Tire) Flips x6 – made a stop behind North’s football field. Each PAX performed 6 tire flips while the other PAX performed their choice of core exercise.

We continued our mosey and took Ellis back towards the park. We passed up Captain Crunch’s home. He who was nowhere in sight but did see Fruit Loops waving through the window.

We ended at the parking lot and alternated between the following:

Pickle Pounders x25, 20, 15, 10, 5

Stumphumpers x25, 20, 15, 10, 5

CoT: Praise for Bloomer’s son and his one year anniversary of having brain surgery. Prayers for Hancock and his M as the go through the journey of buying a house.

Moleskin: The day was was great. Good beatdown, slow pace, and great conversation. Often times, we get wrapped up in the fast pace of our day to day lives. Today was a reminder to slow down and enjoy the moment and each other’s company.
