8 beautiful ladies joined me on this humid foggy morning to GET IT DONE! Way to go ladies! We came, we hit the pavement, and we conquered that damn merry go round. Ha ha!
We started with some stretching as we waited for everyone to find a spot and get settled. Then we ran the big loop, and the front of the school, to get warmed up.
Then right on to the Thang:
This was the 2nd appearance of the Merry Go Round at the Union. Pretty simple concept. Run it like an accumulator. Start off with a run around the big loop, and then on to Round 1. After we did our burpees, we ran another big loop and started Round 2. And so on….always running the big loop between rounds.
Round 1– 5 burpees and a lap
Round 2– 5 burpees, 10 merkins, lap
Round 3– 5 burpees, 10 merkins, 15 BGSUps, lap

The ladies that were done first continued to run while the rest of us finished up. Then Valor lead us in her Fergie, London Bridge glute buster before we stopped for prayers and Name o Rama. Thanks Valor! We prayed for our FiA sisters, families, continued healing for Bourbon, safety and quick healing for Wilson’s daughter, and thanked God for keeping our bodies strong enough to keep on going.
Always such a great start to my week to be able to be with my FiA sisters and work hard. You ladies killed it today!
Loved seeing Fancy Boots back at the Union today, and enjoyed meeting you Certified! Hope you all have a great week!
