Vortex, Pyramids, & Fire! Sounds like a Sci-Fi disaster movie! Not quite, just some FiA ladies out to start their morning with a bang!
The weather was cold & rainy, about 45 degrees but the wind made it feel much colder. You just gotta love Georgia spring weather. We warned up with some arm & neck circles, Michael Phelps, hip rotations, and leg swings. I wanted to try a new warm up game I found, called the Vortex. All PAX got into a big circle. We ran counterclockwise and while running, I asked a question. If the answer was yes, then you ran into the center (the vortex) and dropped and did a push up, then rejoined the moving circle. It was a fun warmup and we got to learn something about each other. Like the fact than none of the PAX had ever been scuba diving!

We stretched, COT, and name-o-rama. We prayed for those in quarantine and Dr Doolittles friends father undergoing a procedure soon.
Have a wonderful day ladies! In case you forgot, YOU ARE AMAZING.
