NerdStrong Gym - Goonies Never Say Die
So a little back story first.. Early last week I mentioned to coach Andrew via Facebook messager that this Sunday is the 30th Anniversary of one of my all time favorite movies The Goonies. I asked if he could create a Goonies themed workout for Sunday's workout (he replied with "Maybe :) ) and sure enough today on the board is a Goonies themed workout.. woohoo!!!
My team consisted of Brenden, Kiki, Jen and myself. First thing we did was discuss which weight each of us were taking. I was the Mikey of our group and kind of took charged. So I laid out my plan. Brenden or I would take the 45lbs weight but since I wasn't at 100% Brenden was kind enough to carry that one. I carried the 25lbs weight while Jen did the 15lbs and Kiki did the 10lbs. Brenden did the first run since he was carrying the heaviest weight and I knew it would be harder and harder as we continued to do the workouts in between the runs, so we got his out of the way first. I then suggested that Jen go second, I would go third and Kiki would go last because she had the lightest weight and after doing four rounds of the workout we'd be spent but carrying the lightest weight would be the best opinion at the end. Everyone seemed to like my idea so we went with it.
It was a great workout, I think the toughest part was holding the plank between the workouts while the one person ran. We were all determined to not break the plank and hold the entire time. I love doing team workout, especially when they are themed. It really does get you through them. Thanks to my awesome team of Goonies, Brendan, Kiki and Jen you guys rocked it!!! And thank you to the awesome coaches, coach Andrew, coach Seely and coach Blair.
