APR 6, 2016 WAWA: Fifty for Big Sister!

Sibling rivalry runs deep in my family of three kids, with me being the middle child!  One younger brother and one older sister.  This Wednesday, my older sister, Michele, hits the age 50 milestone….and while she’ll hate that I’ve publicly announced that, I’m dedicating this week’s WAWA in her honor.

We’ll do fifty, 1-minute exercises as our main set.  There will be five groups of 10 exercises; 9 are non-running and the 10th will always be jogging around the basketball court for 1 minute!

The weather will be chilly outside (37 degrees) so join us indoors at The Cornwell Center.

Please be ready to go at 5:40 am!

WORKOUT LOCATION:  The Cornwell Center

WORKOUT TIME:  5:40 am – 6:40 am


-Ballistic stretching

-3 laps around the upper track


Each exercise is 1 minute each!  No rest between groupings.  Once we start, we won’t stop until 50 minutes later!
