When the Q struggles to figure out a workout and shows up feeling lackluster you can always count on the amazing PAX to enliven the morning and put a smile on her face! Seriously, the FiA Nation is amazing and the sisterhood is such an encouragement to me! Thank you for making me so glad I got up and worked out with you gals this morning!
Four ladies (with an FNG!) joined me for a bit of a wall workout. Honestly, I didn’t count on any FNGs today so my apologies if this workout seemed a little off the wall (har har). I figured I could try some new things with my regular gals and Boy Band got to experience the quirkiness that is a Mary Lou Q!
Because I was feeling sluggish I took the group around a full lap of the park to get the blood pumping. Then we circled up for some mountain climbers and good mornings IC.
Wall Work with a modified Dora: This Dora works best with 3 people as there are three stations. Other than that, Dora numbers are the same you just have 3 of you working toward that 100, 200 and 300 goal.
Handstands against the wall/Merkins (100)/Run a lap around the parking lot
Wall Sit/Jump Squat or Regular Squat(200)/Run a lap
Reverse Wall Sit (lay on back feet 90* against the wall lift hips into air and hold)/Bicycles (300)/Run a lap
Modified Indian Runs (is there some other name for these b/c they don’t involve any actual running…): We lined up in plank position head to toe while last woman bear crawled to the front. We did this twice then reversed with a crawl bear.
6s: Dips on the curb, run up the stairs, star jumps at the top.
Mary: Boat/Canoe on YHC’s call and some supermans IC (15)
COT, name-a-rama, and a prayer of thankfulness that even when we are faithless God remains faithful, even when we aren’t feeling motivated and on top of our game God is faithful and sovereign.
Thanks for coming out on beautiful morning and challenging yourself with some new skills!
-Van Gogh doesn’t think learning a handstand is a valuable skill…I beg to differ!
-According to some, Bagheera has the perfect step cadence while she runs 🙂
-Watching the sunrise on a balmy morning does wonders for the soul, you should try it!
