It’s Tuesday, so let’s work out!

To celebrate the arrival of warmer weather, a Dozen men took the DRP this morning – now a seven of them, who shall be referred to as “The Magnificent Seven” did so from the comfy confines of their homes. This left the Fabulous Five – FidgetSpinner, Mrs. Howell, Loveseat, Siri & yours truly – UptownGirl.

The Fabulous Five executed with Alabama like efficiency (University of Alabama not the State of Alabama) what shall forever be known as the greatest Tabata Tuesday workout of all time. I shall now share with you the critical integrated components of this epic Beatdown.

Arrival – greet the three officers who were there responding to an alarm from the church. Clearly identify myself as a person who is neither an official representative of the church nor a person who is trying to break into the church. No sir, I’m just here to workout and the fact I am wearing all black and carrying a backpack is just bad luck on my part.
