7:00, ready to roll. I’ve got my daughter’s speaker, fumbly fingers, have to listen to the advertisement first, time to roll. Volume or for some reason something was not working. You know you may have a Q fail on your hands when Whoopee becomes your new IT guy. He got us going. Quick disclaimer, as the burgeoning sound of Neil Diamond’s America starts I commence the reading of The Declaration of Independence. Dang, somehow the preamble of the song got away from me and we got right into the beat. Had to drop my reading and call out the first exercise…..Side Saddle Hop as you like, oyo!!!
Part way in, Merkins IC – 10.
Squats 10 IC
Neil Diamond is still singing ‘America’, let’s do up/downs on Today!!! There’s a whole lot more of those than you think and Rudolph figured that out as he was trying to keep one on one inline with the music.
Cranked up the Spotify July 4th extra special celabratory music on and off we go to front parking lot of FPC.
First song……Martina McBride, Independence Day (I know, it’s not exactly about 4th of July, but I do love this song). Side straddle hops entire song, 3 burpees on Independence Day. On Let Freedom Ring stanza we take a lap, sort of rinse and repeat to the next lines.
Done, lap around FPC.
Second song……Toby Keith, Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue. Zombie Walk during entire song, 5 burpees on Red, White and Blue. Don’t laugh, it worked. Well, laugh if you like cause the whole time was kind of funny. But it actually did work.
Lap around FPC, stopped short at area that looked good. The distance was too long for the next song, but it sort of worked.
Third song…….Born in the USA, Bruce Springsteen. Run clockwise around large island, every stanza of Born in the USA you make a 1/4 turn. Hereto, Run, Karaoke, NUR, Karaoke, etc. etc. etc. It worked.
Well, at this point it felt like 7:53 but it was closer to about 7:23. Went to the steps.
Eleven’s……Bottom, CDD’s. Top, CDD’s.
Back up to the front, chewed off about 5 minutes doing a hold and burn while somebody runs.
Back to Schiele, bombed Painlab and Rudolph looked like he was working the group over well.
We wrapped up with the Military Medley. In order, Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, Marines amrap each until complete.
Air Force-Starjacks (I clearly am unable to do these)
Prayers/Concerns: our Nation, men in F3 rise up and be leaders in your communities.
I had a great time this morning, think we all did. It was an honor to lead.
