Flags were set in a circle in the soccer field with an exercise at each. Time for some musical chairs exercises. Timer set for 1 minute on, 15 second break. PAX run laps of the circle for a minute, 15 seconds to find the exercise they want, perform the exercise for one minute, 15 seconds to walk/recover…and repeat. 12(?) total rounds completed.

Q had some rambling thoughts about current events. Many arguments are had about issues as if things are black and white. We put people in a box based on the beliefs they express. If they think businesses should reopen “they must not care about people dying of corona.” If they think people should stay home “they must not care if I lose my job.” It is much more effective and productive to start discussions based on common ground. “We both agree that restarting the economy is a good thing. And we both agree that preventing people from getting corona is a good thing. We just disagree about how much weight to give each position.” This is a much more compassionate way to relate to people, instead of defining people by their positions.


Free Candy loves those side planks.

All PAX enjoyed trying out Helicopters- we won’t say whose was best.

The burpee station was shockingly unpopular.


No workout at RidgeCut on Thursdays from now on. Just Wednesday and Friday. Tell your kids, tell your wife, tell your husband, cause we’re gonna see you out there.
