In honor of the first day of classes for most students in Gaston County, The Labyrinth went Back to School.

YHC arrived to find Maybelline sitting lonely by the shovel flag after getting in some EC. Capt Stubing rolled in a little before 0530, and it was time to go.

(Very) Quick disclaimer

The Pledge

And time to hop on the bus…

Like the giant yellow school buses, the PAX needed a little warm-up. With the tune of The Wheels on the Bus playing in your mind, the warm-up went like this:

Wheels on the bus go round and round: Freddie Mercury IC x 15
Wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish: SSH IC x 15
Horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep: Burpees x 5
Driver on the bus says move on back, move on back, move on back: NUR a lap around Snoball’s

Time to mosey the bus down the road. Our route took us up (and down) Gastone’s Hill. Had to pick up the kids on the bus, so at every mailbox (up and down) 5 Merkins (27 mailboxes, which Maybelline was able to calculate as 135 Merkins). Props to the Site Q for being ready to math on the first day of school.

After picking up the kids, the bus was on its way again. We found out some of the kids forgot some of their school supplies so we had to stop by Dollar General on the way to school.

Little Timmy forgot his Squats, so we picked those up for him. He got one for each kid on the bus so we did 27 Squats IC.
Maybelline forgot his Mike Tysons so we did 27 Mike Tysons IC.
Capt Stubing found a cockroach on the bus so the kids each stomped one out and we did 27 Dying Cockroaches IC.
There are no weapons allowed on the bus, but Little Janie forgot her American Hammers so we had to pick those up. 27 American Hammers IC

Now that everyone had all their school supplies, the PAX moseyed across the street to the school.

First class of the day was Geometry so we started with a lesson on shapes. PAX did Rectangle Four Corners in the parking lot.

Corner 1: 10 Plank Jacks
Corner 2: 10 Plank Jacks, 20 Squats
Corner 3: 10 Plank Jacks, 20 Squats, 30 LBCs
Corner 4: 10 Plank Jacks, 20 Squats, 30 LBCs, 40 Flutter Kicks (count 1 leg)

Only had time for 1 class today so time to mosey back. Stop at the base of Gaston’s Hill to drop off the kids (let them walk up the hill themselves, bus driver got to get home) Merkins x 5

Mosey back to Snoball’s
