In honor of Bernie Sanders being EVERYWHERE this week, we did the Bernie Sanders 3 times:
run up the hill backwards, then down forwards. Repeat 3 times. We felt the Bern in places the Bern has never been felt before.
Mosey around front entrance to Weddington Middle and back to starting point, and have PAX (Das Boot, Swift, Sheldon, Fruit Loops and Blue Screen) lead us in one round each of an exercise of their choice)
And that’s time!!
Fruit Loops put a lot of good thought into his VQ and the PAX had a good time.  We learned about the history of Maserati, various engine sizes and HP and we got some cadence practice.  Fruit Loops took on the big challenge of his VQ being an hour-long workout and he pulled it off well.
