Take it to the courts

We had a new face to the crew today, welcome Steven who blogs at Running Chose Me. He came in with the 5:30AM crew which rolled pretty deep to start the morning, we even saw Courtney, who had been out for a little while, but we were glad to see her this morning too! She is actually in the group photo! Rarely is she able to be at all three groups before of her work schedule.

The 6AM squad assembled at the corner of 10th & N Street, where we joined in with a couple of other awesome peeps including David of FitFam6.com, Cakes aka Ernesto and JK made an appearance … Yes, Judy was at the workout too!

After a couple of more miles the squad made our way from the West Steps over to Roosevelt Park, about 1/3 of a mile down 10th Street. There is where the action would all go down. Today’s workout was challenging but nothing too hard compared to our recent Wednesday workouts …

The workout was another as many rounds as possible workout for 20 minutes, which looked like this…

  • 10 Burpees
  • Out and back run
  • 20 push ups
  • Out and back run
  • 10 get ups
  • Out and back run
  • 20 sit ups
  • Out and back run

Each person did pushed themselves through as much as they could do. It’s all about doing what you can do, not what other people can do, while providing one another with a ton of support and cheering on.

During the workout there might have been some layups made or missed and some pull up jumpers that tended to fall short rather than in the hoop. I think Brad 1.0 even did his best Kareem Sky Hook at one point, I wish there was some video on this.

The idea of playing some 5v5 came about, but it actually never happened.

Everyone have a great weekend! Oh and don’t forget our next workout … Wednesday, June 1 is going to be an all running workout as we celebrate Global Running Day! So come and join us!
