Welcome to visitor Paula Dean from Naperville! Hope you enjoyed our workout today! Chatter started with an unexpected warm-up at the Happy Place. Everybody was definitely warm after the first song. Chatter very quickly became groaning as Thunderstruck struck pain on the arms for 5 minutes. As the workout continued chatter became less and less as focusing on planking became more and more intense. Who knew that planking for 3-4 minutes at a time would bring as much pain and groaning. Tried to throw in some workout with “non-planks”- consensus still a lot of plank. Music was a nice change of pace- even Mary got in with what I deem her theme song “Proud Mary.” Those 3 minutes got some groans as well. Piper- you missed out on your favorite Flutter Kicks!!!! Overall good work today. National encouragement Day! So in closing- you guys are good enough- you’re smart enough- and dog gone it- I like you!!!! Have a great day and see you Friday!!!!
