I Did It All For the Frozen Fruit Pops

Clyent Dinner (06/02/22)

Quotes from the Gloom:

  • “It’s so hot!”
  • “Is it time for fruit pops, yet?”

The above may or may not have been uttered by all six 2.0’s (and several of the adults, as well).

In any case, on to…

  • It was somewhere in the midst of the Ab Web that we totally lost the majority of the 2.0’s. Even with staying in the shade, they were all pretty melted. So, they sat on the picnic tables there in the shady alcove and watched the adults do silly things.
  • After everyone all of the adult pax crushed the Ab Web, we stretched it out a bit with Upward Dog and Downward Dog before doing…
  • Hand Slap Merkins with a partner
  • Time was running short, so…
  • Mosey back to CoT.

Moleskine (i.e., Spreadsheets from the Gloom)

Yeah, I think the only motivation that my 2.0’s had to even come was the promise of frozen fruit pops at the end—a very powerful motivation. And, I admit, they tasted extremely good at the end of the workout. Great job to the adult pax in particular for pushing the whole time even with how warm it was.
