It’s raining daily here in Texas.
We’re dealing with flooded and washed out areas. Water in the river rose 20 feet in 24 hours and as a result, houses are floating down the river along with thrill seekers on inflatable couches.
It reminds me that back in 2007 it rained for 33 days straight during the normally sunny, dry months of June and July. The lakes were closed on July 4th that Summer due to so much flooding. The lakes closing on July 4th in Texas is about as scarce as hen’s teeth.
BOOTCAMP INSTRUCTORS! TELL ME IF THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU
I was still running bootcamps outside in 2007. My bootcampers showed up at 5:45am and 6:30am for the 2nd class. We had a pavilion (a roof over our heads) but with the wind blowing so hard at times, the rain came in sideways to say good morning! Not fun for us. Especially day after day during those 33 straight days. After about 3 weeks, people stopped showing up if it was raining. I couldn’t blame them. I was sick of watching the weather each day, having multiple workouts planned, getting drenched and watching my numbers dwindle.
TIME FOR A BACK UP PLAN
I guess I thought the rain would stop at some point. I mean this is Texas. It may rain for a few days but then the sun comes out, dries things up and the birds are back to building their nests out of barbed wire.
I had to create a few specialized workouts in the event that we were in the middle of a workout and the rain came. It’s why I created a “Rain Workout” and multiple variations on it to be sure and have my bases covered. I mean, I couldn’t just have one rain workout – that would have been as exciting as a mashed-potato sandwich. I needed multiple versions of the “Rain Workout”. During this time, I really began to understand the importance of having short “fillers” for those uncontrollable moments like weather, an angry mob, an uneven number of people, etc.
So I started creating more and more “filler” workouts. Some call’em “finishers”. There’s more than one way to break a dog from sucking eggs. Whatever you want to call’em, I found a resource that I’ve been using over and over. Below is a full review of “Workout Finishers” that I did just for you.
