A Grueling Team Workout

Leave a comment

Catch the medicine ball and throw it back
Sprint to first base
Push-ups
Lunges to second base
Burpees
Bear crawl or third base
Spider-Man Leg pumps
Jumping back and forth across the line to home base.
Then do it
Again
And again
And one more time.

I was the last one to get done
I had never been through a drill like this before.
I almost was the oldest teacher to do it, and the PE teacher came along side me at the end and did it with me.
Being part of a team and having a coach come along side me to finish met a need in my heart.
As I become an assistant coach this year, I will remember this part of professional development and remember the power of coming along side someone to help them finish a grueling work out.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
