School’s Out for Summer!

  • When: 06/11/2016
  • Q: DIY
  • Pax: Fire Tongs, DIY, Sunshine, N'Sync, Eno, Wahoo, Free Range, Road Rage, and welcome to FNG "Yankee"

It’s time for summer camp – for my 2.0 next week and for us FiA ladies today.  Here’s what went down at Camp FiA:

Warm-ups on the soccer field: arm circles, windmills, imperial walkers.

First camp activity: Mountain Climbing

  • 20 mountain climbers IC
  • Sprint up parking lot hill to first cone (1/3 of the way up), jog back, 20 mountain climbers IC
  • Sprint up hill to second cone (2/3 of the way up), jog back, 20 mountain climbers IC
  • Sprint up all the way and catch your breath, 12 burpees at the top of the hill

Second camp activity: “travel” on the camp bus for a field trip

  • Lunge walk half way, then high skips the other half to the wheelchair ramp
  • Bear Crawl up the wheelchair ramp, crab walk across, then crawl bear back down the ramp
  • 10 burpees

Third camp activity: Off to the Races!

  • Run to the track and find a shady spot (how can it already feel like 100 degrees and 100% humidity this early in the summer?)
  • Donkey kicks/heel pulses x20 each
  • Run around the track and then to the playground

Last Camp Activity: Rifles (we exercised our “guns”)

  • inverted rows on the swings x20 (this group was our timekeeper and we switched off when they were done)
  • dips on the benches
  • incline push-ups
  • run back to soccer field

For Abs, everyone chose their favorite and led the group to their count (plus 10 more burpees for a total of 42)

Quote of the day from Muhammed Ali (RIP): “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact; it’s an opinion.  Impossible is not a declaration; it’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.  Impossible is nothing.”

I would have said “impossible” if someone told me this time last year that I’d be Qing a workout involving burpees and bear crawls.  Thanks for making impossible temporary, FiA!

Yours in sweat,
