Grab your coupon and maintain a neutral spine, we’re going on a Great Migration around the Ideal Park loop! PAX were instructed to do AMRAP Coupon Swings and remember their rep count.  When a PAX needed a break, that PAX would take as many steps around the loop as they completed reps.  Once they took the same amount of steps as reps, they would resume Coupon Swing reps…wash, rinse, repeat until they got to the Love Shack.

PAX completed approximately 120 Coupon Swings to get to the Love Shack.  Q then decided to Abort Mission as the Coupon Swings were rooough.  After a 30 second break to stretch, PAX competed AMRAP Coupon Curls, maintaining their count and then taking as many steps as they completed reps, while also Squatting on every 5th step.  PAX would wash, rinse, repeat until arriving at the butterfly.  PAX completed approximately 180 Coupon Curls.

PAX shared what they were doing for Spring Break

Humpty Dumpty asked some great questions about teenagers and being a step-parent.  Gravy shared a thought from Josh Shipp relating parenting teenagers with riding a rollercoaster. In short, the teenager is riding the rollercoaster, the parent is the seatbelt/restraint.  The first thing the teenager does is wiggle, stretch, push, prod and stress the seatbelt/restraint to test if it is secure and will hold them.  That is what the teenager is doing with you as a parent, to confirm that you are certain and will hold them through the wild up, downs, twists and turns of the rollercoaster of life and the teenage years.
