The Den is back in business, with 13 PAX today! I know that alarm was not friendly this morning and we are all used to sleeping in a little later now. But, I can promise you, that it feels GREAT to be back with our FiA sisters, sweating so early in the morning.
We gathered around at 5:30 and did stretches while the last few ladies parked and got situated. We started with arm circles, Michael Phelps, Reach Up to the Sky then Touch Your Toes, and Quad stretches. Then we played Catch Me If You Can as we traveled to the back of the school. Everyone partnered up. One partner starts running backward. The other does 5 jumping jacks, then runs to catch up. Partners switch. We did this around the bend and back to the bus lanes.
Once we hit the bus lanes, I explained how to Load the Buses. We start in bus lane 1 with 1 burpee. Then we run to bus lane 27 and do 27 squats. Then run back to bus lane 1 for 1 burpee. Next we run to bus lane 26, do 26 monkey Humpers, then run back to lane 1 for a burpee. We continue to decrease a bus lane with each round. We cycled through 4 exercises: Squats, Monkey Humpers, Around the Worlds, and Moroccan Nightclubs.
Everyone made it to bus lane 10 before time was up, but we had a few that almost made it through every lane. It was hot and humid, and we were certainly sweaty at the end! Guac, Mater, Wonder Woman, and Killa were fast today! Chai was so sweet and upbeat about her quick introduction to Loading the Buses today. She did great for a first timer! Everyone did great and I heard minimal complaining! We were all just so happy to be #bettertogether!
We moseyed back to our parking lot and circled up. We prayed for our FiA sisters that are hurting: Chocolate Chip and Bourbon. We prayed for a few of our Teens that are growing and hurting and figuring out life. We prayed for our country, for our people, and for our health.
We closed with our Name-O-Rama and some parking lot chit chat!
it was a wonderful morning at the Den! Thanks for letting me be your Q!
