run around the school to the top of the parking lot-40 gorilla humpers
run down the hill and and back up 3 times
run through the parking lot to the base of the stairs-40 Lunges 20/leg
Run up the stairs 3 times
Run around the school and back to the start-40 wall jumps
Lap 1 complete
Rinse and repeat
