Inspired by a recent workout at The MUD Room, I remembered that I had a similar workout in the “Magic Binder of FiA Workouts” and pulled out the U2 You too! Workout and simplified the plan a little from the last time we did it.

It was 30 degrees, so we needed some cardio and U2 delivered!

COT – Lyrics at the end of Love Rescue Me

“I said Love Rescue me; I’ve conquered my past; The future is here at last; I stand at the entrance; to a new world I can see; The ruins to the right of me; Will soon have lost sight of me; Love rescue me.”



By the time we took our photo, we had worked out so hard that even the SUN decided to join us! It was a good morning at The Coop!
