This workout was inspired by thinking about equilateral triangles. An equilateral triangle has equal angles and equal side lengths. This makes the shape of a tent or > when rotated 90 degrees so the point is up in the air. Thus it has an equal incline climbing up it as the decline going down it. This is what we experienced today with the setup of the workout. We had multiples of 5 for the day of the month and they should add up to multiples of 60 in terms of seconds and reps since that is the number of degrees per angle. Three core parts to the workout for the 3 angles/sides.

If you are wondering about the image, it pretty much sums up equality: we are all equal regardless of sex, age, ethnicity, etc.. You can take the pessimistic view that we are all equally worthless, but I like to be the optimist and see it as us all being equally valuable as we are all created in the image of God.

This morning was a good bit of fun. My brain spazzed out on the cadence for an exercise or two in the warmup. Overall it went well and there were no injuries which was great. It sounded like everyone enjoyed the workout as well. I was glad to have Van Gogh and Game Over out again. Hopefully we can see them more often. Thanks for letting me lead! Y’all have a blessed day!
