Today was an AWESOME day!! FiA Nation set out to make sure no PAX missed a Monday! And let me tell you, they showed up ready to get it done!
23 gorgeous and strong ladies showed up at the Union, before the sun came up, to get their week started off right. The energy was electric, and the company was even better!
We got our bodies moving and warm with some TTT, Toy Soldiers, and Kangaroos in cadence. Then we did 45 seconds for each part of a deconstructed Burpee (hold plank and jump feet up by hands, then back/merkins/squat jumps with hands up). We ran a big lap, and got ready for the Thang:
First up was the Merkin ladder. For time purposes, we started at 10. The ladies grab their mats and gloves and went to the front parking lot. We set up our mats across from each other against the curbs, and started with a run to the opposite side. Then you drop and do 10 Merkins, hop up and run to the other side to do 9 more merkins. Each time after you finish your merkins, you run to the opposite side and count down by one.  This is always a tough one and arm burnout for sure!

The PAX grab their mats and hustled back to the side of the school.  Next up was Run Forrest Run! Everyone partnered up. One partner started running the big loop, while the other one started with Lieutenant Dans.  Some ladies used weights while doing Lt Dan too (shoulder press when coming up from squats, hammer curls using both arms with each lunge).  The weight added a whole new element to Lt Dan too. Argh! Once the runners caught their partner, they would switch places and keep moving. We set a timer for this for 15 min, and we were all pretty ready for it to end!
Next, all the PAX hustled back to their mats for a round of abs.  20 reps of each (on a 3 count) and in cadence with the rest of the group.  We did flutter kicks, bicycles, and BGSUps before it was time to circle up.
Lots of prayers for our FiA sisters, families, and friends.  We took a moment to throw all of our prayer requests into the middle of the COT that was surrounded by lots of love and beautiful women inside and out. Wonder Woman lifted them up and gave them to God.
I honestly can’t think of a better way to start this week than with all of these amazing women and friends.  What an awesome day it was at the Union. I hope all of you will be back soon to join us!! Have a great week! #bettertogether
