Twas a perfect late-May morning, the last days of school were upon us, & an 18PAX of Norsemen & Friends gathered to get the day started right with a great sweat. Tom Petty was one of my first concerts AND first CDs. So let’s pay tribute to this late great singer/songwriter. “After all it is a great big world, with lots of places to run to.” Let’s go!
Stu led the warmup for me so I could get the speaker ready; we figured we would FEEL A WHOLE LOT BETTER if we warmed up so we did some SSH, Weed Pickers, Imperial Walkers, Windmills, Arm Circles, & Micheal Phelps. Now grab a coupon and let’s hit the turf field.
“We started out on a dirty road” and LEARNED TO FLY with 4-Corners
Lap 1 – 15 reps each (WE’RE SO BAD)
Lap 2 – 20 reps (WE WON’T BACK DOWN)
Lap 3 – 25 reps (LAST DANCE WITH MARY JANE)
We realized we did not have to live like a REFUGEE so we circled up and grabbed our coupon. We went FREE FALLING into some Crazy 10s, followed by a 100-yard sprint & mosey back. Then INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN with some Colt-60s (15 curls, overhead press, skull crushers, & bent over rows), followed by 100-yard sprint & mosey back. Rinse & Repeat X2
The Pax started to wonder, “Where are the Burpees? Yes, THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART. So we did SSH & a Burpee on “I NEED TO KNOW”.
Pick your pain and say when involved Freddie Mercs, Fire Hydrants, “AMERICAN GIRL” Hammers & Lunges followed by laps to KINGS HIGHWAY & INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN.
Back to the flag for some Flutters & Merkins. I FEEL A WHOLE LOT BETTER. Do you? Feels good to stinky sweat again. Nice work! Always a pleasure to lead.
Prayers for Pepper’s Team Member Jackson (6yrs old), Deuces’ in-laws, & TO’s co-worker Angel.

SOME PETTY WISDOM:“I’LL KEEP THIS WORLD FROM DRAGGIN’ ME DOWN. GONNA STAND MY GROUND. AND I WON’T BACK DOWN.
“MOST THINGS I WORRY ABOUT NEVER HAPPEN ANYWAY.”
“YOU TAKE IT ON THE FAITH, YOU TAKE IT TO THE HEART. THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART.
“I DON’T KNOW, BUT I’VE BEEN TOLD, ‘YOU NEVER SLOW DOWN, YOU NEVER GROW OLD.”
