Moleskin:

8 PAX gathered on National Ohio day in the wet gloom. In honor of Ohio spelling out the school name- Mary and warm up were exercises that used letters for their description. Possibly for the first time (at least in a while) it was noted that warm up had some grumbling. It set the tone for the die rolling. First round had 60 merkins- but the discussion was that the die seemed to be weighted toward side planking as it was the big roll for the day. Lots of wobbly arms by the time all was said and done. Water break rolls allowed for some leg blasters, ATM and 60 second Al Gore hold. We were all grateful for one roll of the burpees! It was something different and might be interesting to incorporate in some other workouts to add some excitement (or anxiety) with the game of chance.
