    I initially thought that maybe we could continue going to the other end and back as planned, but after one PAX did a reverse Burpee Broad Jump, and I came close to following suite, I decided to just go to the other end. Luckily we didn’t have to worry about any Tokyo drifts out there this morning.
  3. Lap, High Plank, Burpee Broad Jump, half a lap, High Plank
  4. Lap, 6 Inches, 20 Block Squats, half a lap, 6 Inches
  5. Lap, pick up 6, Crab Walk, half a lap, pick up 6
  6. Lap, pick up 6, 20 Block Thrusts, half a lap, pick up 6
  7. Lap, 6 Inches, Murder Bunny, half a lap, 6 Inches
  8. Lap, High Plank, 20 Block Jumps (1 count), half a lap, high plank
    Here Shuttlecock bunny hopped around the track in order to avoid going through the swampy center. I quite enjoyed this site as he seemed to have followed my example of using the arm motions that I was told to use when doing a Bunny Hop: put the hands together and move the hands up and down following how you jump.
  9. Lap, 6 Inches, Bunny Hop, half a lap, 6 Inches
    Mosey back to the parking lot with block.
    One last hurrah
    Jailbreak for 2 laps
    I attempted to keep up with Big Worm, but he outran me.
    Last but not least
    My favorite stretch: the Gravity Stretch
    For those who don’t know this is just laying down on the ground.
    Total Distance: 1.76 miles
    I enjoyed this opportunity to lead my first Q. Initially I was worried about the cadence for the warmup and how to adapt to the wet weather. However neither was a really big issue. There was one hiccup during the warmup where a joke was made, and I started chuckling instead of keeping count. I really enjoyed being able to work with everyone as they graciously corrected some of my mistakes and incorrect names for workouts. Several people liked that I said “relax” instead of “recover”. I do wish that we could have murder bunnied a little more, but we got a good amount in. Several PAX said that the workout was stupid in reference to CSUP events which made me happy as it was fulfilling its purpose of being a difficult workout. I enjoyed being able to call out which clockwise direction we were going in, but I regret not saying it the way my high school cross country coach would have: “anti-counter-clockwise”. Thanks for bearing with me and helping me out where needed!
