Mosey to The Stairs for one trip up and down, holding Plank for the 6
Alternating High and Low Plank until Q was mildly satisfied

Mosey South on Division toward Crescent Park
Stop at 196 Bridge to Lunge to the other side, then continue with Mosey

At the Crescent Park stairs, PAX paired off at the bottom of the stairs for StairBarrowsIn wheelbarrow position, the down PAX climbs three steps on their hands and then performs a Derkin, continuing in that pattern until reaching a landing. PAX flapjack at every landing. PAX then Moseyed around the park, back to the base of the stairs.

From the base of the stairs, PAX Broad Jumped up the stairs. PAX completed two reps. Upon returning from the second rep, Q became lightheaded and took a seat to recover while PAX held plank….Cue the pastor’s prayer from Kraut’s wedding.  “Yep, I’ve definitely been gone a while!”

Mosey back towards AO
Stop at 196 Bridge for Bear Crawl to the other side.

At The Stairs, Q recounted that he had hoped to run The Stairs again, but he didn’t think there would be time, but in fact there was time. So PAX ran The Stairs again!

Mosey back to AO

PAX lined up coupons, shoulder width apart.  PAX got in Merkin position in the space between the coupons, placing one hand on the coupon to their left, and one hand on the coupon to their right.  PAX then performed Negative Incline Merkinslowering their bodies beyond the plane of the coupons, and then back up, in cadence.  22 Reps completed.
