Getting Ready For The Expected While Being Ready For The Unexpected
The unexpected happened this morning. As I was driving to the Firehouse this morning I realized that my Q sheet with the exercise progression was… on the kitchen counter. But I had prepared for the unexpected by keeping Q sheets from other workouts in my truck. Just in case.
So as I pulled into the Firehouse AO (it still looks beautiful with all those LED street lights!) I pulled out a very similar Q sheet. Not exactly the same but close. But I still have my Fire playlist!
I started the playlist going as I had 43 minutes of “Fire” and “Burn” themed songs ready to go. So as Johnny sang “Ring of Fire” we circled up and:
Since it was looking like rain yesterday I had planned a 0.0 day to blow up our major muscle groups in prep for summer beach weather. As one partner does the exercise with the count assigned the other partner does AMRAP of an alternate exercise. No rest, bang them out!
It went like this:
Firehouse Girlfriend Party!
Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash
Burning Down the House – Talking Heads
We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel
Fire – Ohio Players
20 L/R Mountain Climbers
Fire – Pointer Sisters
20 L/R Lunges w/ twist
Disco Inferno – The Trammps
Fire – Hendrix
I’m on Fire – Bruce Springsteen
Light My Fire – The Doors
Burn – Ellie Goulding
Burning Up (Fire) – BTS
And that got us to 6:15 as Adele started to sing “Set Fire to the Rain”.
